UPDATE: According to wwwdotfiercepharma on Oct 29,2014, and other web publications, CVSCaremark will continue Novolog in its formulary for 2015 and there may be others. Express Scripts is the only one who refused to renew NovoNordisks' contracts for Novolog when the Danish maker declined to give them the discounts they wanted. Its a question of pricing.ExScripts gave the contract to Lilly, maker of Humulog, based solely on price.It affects about 600,000 customrs or about 2%. There is talk of a diabetes drug pricing battle afoot that could extend to lantus in the not to far out future. big Pharma pricing has been an issue in this country, but for now its the patient that will be squeezed if the med that works for them is cut off by Rx benefits companies exerting pressure on pharma companies, as Express Scripts has done last year and this year. Hi all, I recently received a letter from my insurance company regarding their switch to Express Scripts National Formulary effective 2015 plan year. What shocked me was the news that Express Scripts has put Novolog and Apidra on the list of EXCLUDED medications on their National Formulary for 2015. In a call to them at 1(877)438-4449, the only number my insurer gave to all, the friendly gentleman at the other end read from a script saying Express Scripts had a meeting of doctors and themselves and decided for cost savings and quality of care to cut Novolog, Apidra, Novolin or regular, Abbott(FreeStyle/Precision) from the list of covered insulin and testing supplies. So it is not even available at the higher copay, it is excluded. The take away is that you may want to recheck your insurance coverage for the Rx benefits for the coming year. If your plan uses Express Scripts National Formulary, and not an Ex Scripts formulary specifically tailored to your insurance plan, you may want to recheck your insurance coverage for the coming year if you want to keep using Novolog. Otherwise its full retail price for it. Just passing this along. I doubt they used a pediatric endocrinologist for this decision. We switched to Novolog years ago after finding the silhouette sets lasted the full 3 days as opposed to two days with Humulog. They are regarded as the same but that is not quite what we found after going on the pump.
