SFHP Formulary

The San Francisco Health Plan Formulary is a list of medications reviewed and approved by our Pharmacy and Therapeutics (P&T) Committee. The P&T Committee is comprised of actively participating network providers and pharmacists who select products on the basis of their safety, efficacy, and quality. Providers are requested to prescribe medications included in the formulary whenever medically appropriate.

Starting of January 1, 2022, Medi-Cal Rx will be responsible for the following pharmacy benefits when billed by a pharmacy on a pharmacy claim. For Medi-Cal Rx’s formulary, also known as the Contract Drugs List (CDL) please visit Medi-Cal Rx’s homepage, under Tools and Resources.

For Medi-Medi members, you can refer to the CDL for the over the counter drugs and over the counter cold/cough preparations lists Medi-Cal Rx covers.
