Is prior authorization required?

We may require your provider to submit information to us to explain why a specific medication and/or certain amount of medication is needed. We must approve the request before you can get the medication. Reasons why we may prior authorize a drug include:

  • There is a generic or pharmacy alternative drug available
  • The drug can be misused/abused
  • There are other drugs that must be tried first
