As you know recent changes in the medical insurance industry have caused each of us to become more aware of the medications that are being prescribed. Your medical insurance company has a drug formulary, which contains a list of covered drugs. Each insurance company may have hundreds of individual formularies it uses for its customers. It is impossible for your physician to know exactly which medications are listed on your particular formulary.
If you desire to initiate prior authorization request to your insurance company, to change your medication, you can choose the following options...Most of these will be denied by your insurance company, since you have a specific medicine formulary, and their requirements are strict.
If you cannot download the packet, you may call 256-245-5241 and ask for Patient Assistance, and they can either mail or fax you a "PA packet".
Again, we hope that this process is helpful and will aid you in getting your prescriptions filled. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause however; this is a requirement of your insurance company.
