Prior (Rx) Authorization Forms

Prior (Rx) Authorization Forms

Updated June 02, 2022

Prescription prior authorization forms are used by physicians who wish to request insurance coverage for non-preferred prescriptions. A non-preferred drug is a drug that is not listed on the Preferred Drug List (PDL) of a given insurance provider or State. On the prior authorization form, the person making the request must provide a medical rationale as to why the chosen medication is necessary for the patient in question. If the patient has tried any preferred medications in treatment of the relevant diagnosis, the duration of therapy and reason for failure will be described in the form as supporting justification for making this request. Any relevant clinical data and medical documents should also be attached with this form when it is submitted to the insurance provider. Once completed, this form should be faxed or mailed to the correct directory for processing
