The drug search feature on this page will no longer be available after March, 21, 2017. HFS is implementing a new Pharmacy Drug Benefits System (PBMS) on Sunday, March 26, 2017 at 5:00pm CDT. At that point, the formulary and Preferred Drug List (PDL) will be available to registered prescribers and pharmacies through the Illinois Provider Portal. The Illinois Provider Portal is available to all prescribers and pharmacies registered through the IMPACT system. For more information on the new PBMS and to access the new Illinois Rx Provider Portal, go to or you can click on the link below.
