Anthem Blue Cross (Anthem) has partnered with CoverMyMeds to offer an electronic prior authorization (ePA) request tool that simplifies the process for requesting medications and checking the status of your submissions.



With the new ePA tool you will be able to:

  • Submit requests for general pharmacy medications (medications dispensed directly to a member from a retail pharmacy [or shipped from a specialty pharmacy]).
  • Check PA status.
  • Upload supporting documents and review appeal status.



The tool will be available beginning November 4, 2018.
