Where can I fill my prescriptions?

Where can I fill my prescriptions?

We keep health care close to home. You can fill your prescriptions at any pharmacy in our network. You can also get prescriptions from a long-term care (LTC) pharmacy if you are in a nursing home or long-term care facility. A Home Infusion (HI) pharmacy may fill a prescription for medication given to you by an intravenous route or other non-oral routes, such as intramuscular injections in your home.

Prior authorization

Prior authorization

Some medications have rules you need to follow before we cover them. These include:

 

  • Prior authorization – You or your doctor needs approval from us before we cover the drug.
  • Quantity limits – For certain drugs, we limit the amount you can get.
  • Step therapy – We require you to try another drug first before we cover your drug.

You and your provider can ask us to make an exception to one of our coverage rules. This includes requesting an exception to a prior authorization, quantity limit or step therapy rule.

What if my medicine isn’t covered?

We might be able to make an exception for you. We may be able to cover your medicine if it isn’t on our Drug List. If your medicine has a limit, we may be able to increase it. You can request an exception, or your Provider or representative can request one on your behalf. We also need a statement from your prescriber supporting your request. After we receive the statement, we will give you a decision on your exception request within 72 hours. If you or your prescriber think your health may be harmed if you have to wait 72 hours for a decision, you can ask for an expedited exception. This is a faster decision. If your prescriber supports your request, we will give you a decision within 24 hours of receiving your prescriber’s supporting statement.

Prescription drug transition policy

Prescription drug transition policy

There may be times where you’re taking a drug that either isn’t on our drug list or has special rules before we cover it.

Learn about our transition process to see if you’re eligible for a short-term supply of medication. This temporary supply allows you to work with your doctor to either transition to a new drug or request an exception to continue your current drug.

If you have any questions, you can call Member Services. Or read more about our prescription drug transition process.
