Simplifying medication prior authorization processes
Anthem’s Proactive PA process approves select drugs in real time, using an automated prior authorization (PA) process. Proactive PA uses integrated medical and pharmacy data to seamlessly approve medication prior authorization requests where diagnoses are required. Anthem’s prior authorization process helps to ensure clinically appropriate use of medications.
Providers can take advantage of the electronic prior authorization (ePA) submission process by logging in at covermymeds.com. Creating an account is FREE, and many prior authorizations are approved in real time. Read more about the ePA submission process in the previously published article titled “BCBSGa accepts electronic prior authorization requests for prescription medications online.”
Additionally, providers may be able to access real-time, patient-specific prescription drug benefits information through their electronic medical record (EMR) system. To learn more about this feature, review the article titled “Access patient-specific drug benefit information through EMR” that was published in the October 2018 edition of our provider newsletter.
