Change in Catamaran 2014 Advantage Formulary
If you are enrolled in either the Cigna Medical Group Plan (HMO) or the Open Access Plus Plan (PPO), with pharmacy benefits provided through Catamaran, this information is for you.
Effective January 1, 2014 the annual change to the Catamaran Advantage Formulary will take place.
If you are currently taking a medication that will become “Non-Preferred” on January 1, you are encouraged to talk with your physician and ask if a preferred alternative is right for you.

You will be mailed a letter that summarizes the changes to the current formulary, a list of the medications which you are taking that are affected by the change, and the names of possible preferred alternatives. For a complete list of preferred products or for more information on your pharmacy benefit program, log onto www.mycatamaranrx.com.
