The Department of Defense (DoD) and U.S. Congress have identified Military Health System pharmacy benefit as an area for reform. To this end, the DoD is required to establish a single uniform formulary (UF) of covered drugs. The legislation also requires two surveys of prescribers-a baseline survey prior to UF implementation and a post-implementation survey. In the baseline survey, most direct-care prescribers reported a high degree familiarity with formularies and perceived formulary management as contributing toward quality of care, whereas most purchased-care respondents reported less familiarity with formulary lists and did not believe that formulary management contributes to quality of care.
