Prescription Drugs

CareOregon pays for many prescription drugs. The ones we cover are on a list called a “formulary.” When your provider prescribes a medicine, ask if it’s on CareOregon’s formulary. The formulary also explains if there are special rules about the drug. Click on the link below to open the drug list.

2020 CareOregon OHP Formulary (updated 10/20)




If you urgently need a drug that’s not on our formulary, call Customer Service. You, your provider or your pharmacist can ask for an emergency 72-hour (maximum) supply. To fill a prescription, go to any pharmacy in our network. You’ll have lots of choices. Our network includes most large pharmacy chains and many independent drug stores.

Please note that many mental health prescriptions are paid for directly by the state and not CareOregon, and may have a small copay.

If you would like a paper copy of the formulary sent to you, call Customer Service at 800-224-4840 or TTY 711. There is no charge for this service and you will receive your copy within five business days.

Mail-order pharmacies

MEDS Chart

It can be a real challenge keeping up with lots of prescriptions all at once. More and more people have ten, a dozen, 20 or more. It can be hard to keep them all straight, and even harder to tell your doctor when there’s something about your medications that you don’t like. CareOregon’s My Easy Drug System (MEDS) is a tested way to make sure your medications are working as a positive part of your health care plan.

The MEDS Chart helps you remember why you’re taking a medication, and let others know how you feel it’s working for you:

Example of a MEDS Chart which includes the drug name, why you take it, how you feel about it, and any notes you have on the drug.

Ask for your MEDS Chart today!

Any CareOregon member can request a MEDS Chart that shows all your medications. The MEDS Chart can help you explain to doctors or caregivers if you have a medication side effect you don’t like or if you are concerned about a medication not working for you. Letting your doctor, pharmacist or caregiver know how you feel about your medications can help them find choices for you that work better and may improve your health.

To request a personalized MEDS Chart, send an email with your name, address and date of birth to medschart@careoregon.org, send us a message through the Member Portal or call 503-416-4915.

You can also click the button below to open the MEDS Chart as a fillable PDF document.
