A Brief History of How We Got to Electronic Prior Authorization
Prepare for a Seasonal Increase in Prior Authorization Requests
My office is crazy with PA at the start of a new year. Why do I receive so many requests?
During the months of January and February, prescribers historically have seen a 55 percent increase in the number of prescriptions that require PA. This increase is due to changes in prescription coverage, formulary modifications and renewal requirements.
That sounds like a big increase. What can I do to ease the burden?
Don’t panic! The 55 percent increase can seem daunting, but luckily our solution can remove the burden. If you haven’t yet, begin by registering for a CoverMyMeds account to easily find and track PA requests as they come in. By utilizing our electronic prior authorization (ePA) solution, you and your staff can be sure that everything is streamlined and accessible when PA season kicks off.
What else does CoverMyMeds' ePA solution offer?
There are numerous benefits of using CoverMyMeds. Here are a few more:
Link your Accounts
Link your accounts by forming a group so that everyone who deals with PA in your office has access to the same requests. This will help lighten the load.
Verify Your Providers
Verify your prescriber and their NPI so when a pharmacy sends a PA request to your office, the process can begin immediately.
You can verify when signing up for a CoverMyMeds account, or retroactively verify by clicking “prescribers” at the top of your dashboard. This will keep everything moving.

CoverMyMeds has PA Experts ready to help you make it through the 55 percent increase. Call 866-452-5017 if you have any questions or click to chat at the bottom right corner of the screen.
