Step therapy

A process designed to help control high medicine costs. If your plan applies step therapy to your prescription, it will require that you try a lower-cost medicine that’s proven effective to treat your condition, before it will cover a higher-cost medicine. If the lower-cost medicine does not treat your condition effectively, your plan’s coverage will “step” you to a higher-cost medicine to find a medicine that treats your condition effectively at the lowest possible cost.
