If you are not using CoverMyMeds for drug prior authorizations (PAs), you should take a look at this free service that streamlines a typically tedious task.
CoverMyMeds is an online drug prior authorization program that allows physicians to begin the PA process electronically for all drugs, and nearly all payers, including Medicare Part D.
CoverMyMeds uses a combination of state, drug, and plan names to find the right form for you to use for your patient's medication and health plan. You may start a new PA request, or access and finish a request started by the pharmacy. You'll fill out the form online, sign it, and submit it to the health plan for approval. You'll receive a response from the health plan via fax, or through your CoverMyMeds account dashboard.
You can access CoverMyMeds through its website, the NaviNet National Multi-Payer Portal, or your office's electronic health record or clinical system.
