The Wellmark Drug List helps guide physicians and pharmacists in choosing medications for you that provide the right treatment for the best price. A committee of statewide pharmacists and physicians meet several times a year to update the list by analyzing new drugs and re-evaluating existing ones based on safety, cost and effectiveness. 

Wellmark and a statewide committee of pharmacists and physicians review the Wellmark Drug List several times a year. This review helps us identify the safest and most-effective drugs, while reducing costs and making sure members have access to the drugs they need. When a drug's tier or level changes, it can affect the amount you pay. So we made a list to make sure you're never surprised. These changes go into effect Jan. 1, 2018.
