Our Pharmacy and Therapeutics (P&T) Committee voting membership is made up of independent community physicians and pharmacists, who are not Blue Shield of California employees. The P&T Committee reviews and updates the formulary list each quarter so that it includes safe and effective drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). They also review each therapeutic class of drugs on a yearly basis, to ensure the formulary continues to provide a representative sample of the medications available for a condition. Medication coverage criteria is updated and reviewed to reflect current standards of practice. Quality assurance programs are reviewed and approved to enhance Blue Shield's quality of care.
