2018 Formulary Changes Contribute to Prior Authorization Increase
CoverMyMeds cites health plan formulary requirements as one of the most common reasons for provider adoption of an electronic prior authorization (ePA) solution.
As we move into a new year, many health plans make changes to their formularies in order to control costs and provide the best possible therapy options for patients. While these changes are always important, it can be frustrating from the position of a provider to know what medication is or isn’t covered for a patient moving into the new year.
With that in mind, we reached out to some of our internal clinical experts who sifted through the 2018 formulary updates and provided us with what they thought were the most important changes to note this year. Take a look:
