We are adding the new drugs Allegra Allergy, Allegra-D Allergy and Children's Allegra Allergy to the Step Therapy program as First Choice medications. All three drugs (and any store-brand versions of them) treat allergy symptoms. Allegra Allergy, Allegra-D Allergy and Children's Allegra Allergy are available over-the-counter in the same strengths previously available only with a prescription.
We will cover these over-the-counter medications for members who are subject to the Step Therapy program. With a doctor's prescription, members will pay their plan’s generic copayment or coinsurance (if applicable) for any Allegra Allergy products they receive.
To learn more about the Step Therapy program, visit the Prescription Drug Information page on our website and select the Drug Management link. Then select the Step Therapy Drug List link.
