8/14/2015 - Anthem News: OTC Nexium prompts drug formulary changes
NEXIUM® 24HR (esomeprazole 20 mg) became available as an over-the-counter (OTC) 14-day treatment for frequent heartburn in May 2014. As a result, Anthem's drug formulary (list of covered drugs) will change, effective October 1, 2015, as follows: 

Nexium 40 mg moves from Tier 2 to Tier 3 and has been added to the Clinically Equivalent Medications program
Esomeprazole 40 mg moves from Tier 2 to Tier 3
Lansoprazole moves from Tier 1 to Tier 3 

How members will be notified
Members impacted by these changes will be notified of the formulary changes by mail in late August. Around the same time, a separate mailing also will go to members who are currently taking one of several other proton pump inhibitors (PPIs ) by prescription. 

$9 Nexium coupon included in both mailings 
To help encourage members to use the Nexium 24-hour OTC version, instead of by prescription, Anthem will include a $9 coupon with the letters toward one, 42-count retail purchase of the drug. The OTC drug offers a more convenient, affordable alternative to prescription heartburn medicine.
