Some medications listed on the MHS PDL may require a prior authorization. The prior authorization request should be submitted by the doctor or pharmacist on the Medication Prior Authorization Form. Directions on how to submit are included on this form.
MHS will cover medication if it is determined that:
- There is a medical reason the member needs the specific medication.
- Depending on the medication, other medications on the PDL have not worked.
Pharmacy Medication Prior Authorization Forms
Request a Drug to Be Added to the PDL
The health plan formulary/Preferred Drug List (PDL) is based on the plan benefits and is updated on a regular basis. If you believe a medication merits an addition to the PDL, a request may be submitted using the Formulary Change Request form (PDF). The current PDL, which includes information regarding covered drugs, restrictions, prior authorization requirements, limitations, etc., is located on the health plan website.
Home Infusion Medications
For home infusion medications and related supplies, use the universal IHCP prior authorization form (PDF).
For more information on home infusion, see home infusion provider notice.
