What’s Electronic Prior Authorization (ePA)?

Doctor talking to female patient.

We want to make sure you’re getting the right medication for you and your plan. Sometimes we need more information from your doctor about your prescription before it can be covered by your plan. This is called prior authorization.

Prior authorization is also sometimes called a coverage review. Your plan uses this review to help control costs and to make sure the medication is an effective treatment.

An electronic prior authorization (ePA) is a simple and secure way to complete prior authorization requests online. Only your doctor can submit the form. We suggest they use Surescripts. Ask your doctor to send your form electronically to speed up the process. We could respond within minutes.
