The Program HH Medication Program Drug Formulary is a list of the medications you may receive under this program. The formulary includes:

  • All primary HIV treatment drugs
  • Drugs to treat conditions associated with HIV
  • Drugs to help treat side effects of medication treatment.

If you feel a drug should be in the formulary, ask your physician or pharmacist if they would submit a Formulary Drug Addition Request Form (PDF).

An advisory committee of HIV specialty physicians, pharmacists, case managers and consumers meets every two years to review all requests and make recommendations.
