What is a prior authorization?

Certain medications may need approval from your health insurance carrier before they’re covered. For example:

  • Medications that may be unsafe when combined with other medications.
  • Medications that have lower-cost, equally effective alternatives available.
  • Medications that are often used for cosmetic purposes.

If it is discovered that prior authorization is required when processing your medication, don’t worry! Our medical team will help to navigate the process through your insurance company and attempt to get the medication approved and covered by your insurance.
