Aetna Prior (Rx) Authorization Form

Updated December 31, 2021

An Aetna prior authorization form is designated for medical offices when a particular patient’s insurance is not listed as eligible. This form asks the medical office for the right to be able to write a prescription to their patient whilst having Aetna cover the cost as stated in the insurance policy (in reference to prescription costs). The form must be completed by the medical staff and submitted to Aetna in the proper state jurisdiction.
