Some prescription insurance plans have an annual deductible. This is the amount you must pay each year for your prescriptions before your prescription insurance begins to pay its share of your covered drugs.
Generally, when a prescription insurance plan applies a deductible, you will pay the approximate full cost of your medications until you have paid the deductible. Once the deductible is met, you will then only pay your portion or “copay” for your covered medications.
Most deductibles are annual meaning it will restart each plan year. Common plan year start dates are September 1 or January 1.
At any time, you may contact your prescription insurance plan to find out if you have a deductible, how much the deductible is, how much you have currently paid toward that deductible, and when the deductible will restart.
A prior authorization is an extra step that some insurance companies require for certain medications. If your medication requires a prior authorization, it means the insurance company needs more information from the provider before they can decide if they want to pay for it.
Becoming familiar with the prior authorization process may enable you to get your medicine approved faster. But beware, not all medicines will be approved. Even if you do everything right, the insurance company may still refuse to cover your medicine. In the end, the insurance company is the one making the decision.
You may contact your insurance at any time to find out why your medication requires a prior authorization, how long it will take and what you can expect to pay if the authorization is approved.
The prior authorization process may need to be renewed each year, or possibly every month depending on your insurance company.
What medicines require a prior authorization?
- Expensive medicines.
- Medicines with age limits. Retin-A, a topical acne treatment, is an example. Acne is considered to be a condition of children and young adults. Retin-A may not be covered if the person is over a certain age determined by the insurance company.
- Drugs used for cosmetic reasons. For example, Propecia, which is prescribed to re-grow hair or to prevent hair loss.
- Brand name medicines that have a generic available.
- Drugs not usually covered by the insurance company, but said to be medically necessary by the provider. Many different drugs can be used to treat the same condition. If a patient requires a particular medicine, the provider must inform the insurance company that there are no other medicines that would work for the patient.
- Drugs that are usually covered by the insurance company but are being used at a dose higher than “normal”.
What should I do if my medicine needs a prior authorization
- Contact the provider who prescribed the medicine and let them know that your medicine requires a prior authorization.
- Ask your provider how long it usually takes for them to contact the insurance company and fill out the appropriate forms.
- Contact your insurance company and make sure there are no additional steps you need to take. Sometimes an insurance company may want you to fill out some paperwork or sign some forms.
- Allow the provider's office and insurance company enough time to complete their end of the process (usually a minimum of 3 business days once the provider initiates the process.
- Check back with the pharmacy to see if the prior authorization was approved. If your medicine is not approved, call your insurance company and find out why.
What are some of the reasons why a prior authorization may not be approved?
- You did not give your insurance company, provider, and pharmacist enough time to complete the needed steps.
- Your insurance denied your prior authorization claim.
- Your provider's office forgot to contact your insurance company.
