Quantity & Age Limitations
Prescription Management Program

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