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 article published in December 2018.
