UnitedHealthCare Commercial Plans: Pharmacy coverage for Taltz and Siliq coverage for 2020.

Pharmacy Benefit change for UnitedHealthCare Commercial Plans– starting 01/01/2020-biologics Taltz and Siliq will no longer be COVERED (where state law allows) , for the UnitedHealthCare Commercial Plans.

The other preferred/covered biologics are:

Humira

Cimzia

Cosentyx

Simponi

Skyrizi

Stelara

Tremfya

 

*Please check out the pharmacy criteria for the coverage of these above mentioned biologics.
