A drug formulary is a list of covered drugs that represents the prescription therapies believed to be a necessary part of a quality treatment program. The drug formulary is selected by Capital Health Plan in consultation with a team of health care providers. Your drug formulary lists all drugs your plan overs, plus any special rules you'll need to follow with certain medications.
The 2019 formularies can be found by visiting:

How to Request an Exception to Our Prescription Drug Coverage Rules
You, your authorized representative, or your prescribing physician can request an exception to prescription drug coverage restrictions or quantity limits. For example, certain drugs on CHP's formulary have quantity limits. If your drug has a quantity limit, you can ask CHP to cover a quantity over the stated limit. You may need to meet certain clinical criteria to receive an approval for the higher quantity.
The exception request can be initiated by calling our Member Services department at (850) 383-3311 or toll-free at 1-877-247-6512, Monday through Friday from 8:00 am through 5:00 pm. The TDD number for the hearing impaired is (850) 383-3534. After hours or on a weekend, you can call (850) 383-3333 or toll-free (800) 390-1434. The after-hours number for the Florida State Relay, for the hearing impaired, is (800) 955-8771.
You can also submit a drug exception request by sending an email directly to Member Services.
A Member Services representative will contact you within one business day to let you know that the request has been submitted to our Pharmacy Services department for a decision by a Capital Health Plan Medical Director. Staff from the Pharmacy Services department may need to request additional information from you or your prescribing doctor. A request for an exception will be approved only when there is a medical reason for it. If the exception is denied, you will be notified of the decision and given information about your appeal rights. For additional information about the decision-making procedures for an exception request, review the Utilization Management section of the website.
