The IEHP DualChoice (HMO D-SNP) Formulary is a continually updated list of drug products designed to reflect the most appropriate, high quality and cost-effective drug therapies.


The Inland Empire Health Plan Pharmacy and Therapeutics (P&T) Subcommittee develops and monitors the Formulary. The P&T is composed of the IEHP Chief Medical Officer, Medical Directors, Director of Pharmaceutical Services, physicians from various medical specialties, local communities, and clinical pharmacists. This panel reviews the medications in all therapeutic categories based on safety, clinical efficacy, and cost-effectiveness and selects the most appropriate drugs in each class.


Formulary development and maintenance is a dynamic process. The IEHP P&T Subcommittee is responsible for developing, managing, updating and administering the Formulary. The Subcommittee also ensures that the IEHP Formulary remains responsive to the needs of our members and providers.
