  2. Tier change notification for drugs moving to either a higher co-pay tier or lower co-pay on their assigned formulary
  3. Formulary exclusion for products with preferred alternative available. (Request for coverage will require medical necessity.)
  4. Prior Authorization designation for select drugs that will now require authorization for coverage.

A noteworthy change involves the transition from one manufacturer of insulin to another (the Lilly brand to the Novo Nordisk brand).
