Citi Benefits Handbook
Compound Medications
For compound drugs to be covered under the Program, they must satisfy certain requirements. In addition to being medically necessary and not experimental or investigative, compound drugs must not contain an ingredient on a list of excluded ingredients. Furthermore, the cost of the compound must be determined by Express Scripts to be reasonable (e.g., if the cost of any ingredient has increased more than 5% every other week or more than 10% annually, the cost will not be considered reasonable). Any denial of coverage for a compound drug may be appealed in the same manner as any other drug claim denial under the Program.
