Rx Benefits: Step Therapy and Prior Authorization

Beginning with the 2020-2021 Academic year, certain prescription drugs will be subject to Prior Authorization or Step Therapy, ahead of the medication being filled.  These steps are put into place to ensure that our students are receiving the appropriate care, including the right prescription drug for them.  

Note:  Not all prescription medication will be subject to Step Therapy or Prior Authorization.  For a list of applicable medications, please refer to the Prescription Drug List document below.  If a medication is subject to one or both of these, you will see a "PA" or "ST" listed next to it.  

These documents will provide overviews of each of these programs, as well as how our students can navigate the process(es):
