Prior Authorizations

A prior authorization is an approval you or your doctor obtain before you can get coverage for certain medications. The review process helps make sure the medication you’re taking is appropriate and effective for your condition. Check the prescription drug list, also known as the formulary, to find out if a medication you take requires a prior authorization.
