Clinical Prior Authorization (CPA)
Prescription Management Program

Certain prescription medications require a Clinical Prior Authorization (CPA) (approval from the Health Plan) before they will be covered. Types of Clinical Prior Authorizations include, but are not limited to, medications with quantity limitations, age limitations, and/or requiring clinical determinations for appropriate use. The Health Plan’s prescription vendor administers the Clinical Prior Authorization process on behalf of the Health Plan.
