Drugs that Require Prior-Authorization from Express Scripts
There are certain drugs that require prior-authorization from Express Scripts. If your newly prescribed drug (i.e. not a current prescription that needs to be refilled) appears on this list, your provider must contact Express Scripts at 855-230-7775.
Prescription Drug Exclusion List
If your prescription drug appears on the Exclusion List, it will not be covered by your prescription drug plan. You are not required to change drugs, however, if you choose to continue using this medication, you will pay the full cost even if you received a prior authorization in the past. This does not mean you should stop taking your medication. We recommend you talk to your doctor to discuss alternative medication options. Updates to the Exclusion List can be found here: Exclusion List Changes
Secondary Prescription Benefit Coverage by the Fund
If you are covered by the Fund as your secondary carrier, please present your Express Scripts ID card to the pharmacist when picking up your prescription. Your secondary benefits will be processed at the time of payment, instead of requesting a reimbursement from the Fund, as handled previously.
Prescription Drug Reimbursement Form
If you paid out of pocket for a prescription and would like to be reimbursed, please complete the Prescription Drug Reimbursement Form and return it the address listed on the form.
