The IHS National Core Formulary is not an inclusive formulary, but should be considered a baseline to build upon. These agents were reviewed clinically and were considered as standard of care medications for frequently encountered disease states within the Indian Health System. Agents listed on the IHS National Core Formulary should be available on your local formulary.
