Using the Formulary

The formulary can be used to search for medications that are 'on-formulary', which means they are offered by the Mount Sinai pharmacy.

If a medication is marked 'Do Not Prescribe - Apply for PDAP', that means it is a specialty medication that we obtain for free through the use of PDAP (Patient Drug Assistance Programs) from pharmaceutical companies. To request a PDAP medication, please follow the instructions on this form.

If a medication is not on formulary and can't be obtained through PDAP, please see if there is a similar medication on formulary that can be prescribed.

If a medication is not on formulary, can't be obtained by PDAP, and can't be replaced, we can sometimes try to obtain it through purchasing with cash at a local pharmacy; however, please always check-in with the pharmacy team prior to pursuing this option.

If a medication is marked 'Available In-Clinic - See TS', it can be prescribed in clinic for urgent, single treatments.

If a medication is marked 'Available via DOH - Flexible/Primary', this should be the preferred medication since it is free of charge. If it is marked 'Primary', order it normally and the patient can pick it up normally. If this is their first time receiving medications via DOH, tell the patient not to go to the pharmacy until Tuesday. If it is marked 'Flexible', please order normally through Epic and email james.blum@icahn.mssm.edu that it is being prescribed. The medication will arrive in 7-10 days so make sure the patient knows it won't be ready immediately.

Please make sure patients do not pick up medications on Mondays before 12:00 p.m. so the pharmacy can be sure the medications are ready.

If you have any questions/difficulties please contact the pharmacy chair, Jennifer Shmukler.
