IMPORTANT: PRIOR AUTHORIZATION WILL SOON BE REQUIRED FOR ADDITIONAL MEDICATIONS
Dear Valued Client,
At Health Net, we’re developing solutions that give people quality options that cost less. As this relates to pharmacy, we
are adding some drugs to our Prior Authorization list. Please note that this only affects Health Net members who are not
currently taking these drugs and who have a 3-Tier prescription drug plan. In addition, in most cases, it is the provider’s
responsibility to obtain the Prior Authorization (see details on attached member letter). Effective April 1, 2009
We are moving Effexor XR®, Pristiq®, Cymbalta®, and Lexapro® – brand name antidepressant drugs – to the Prior
Authorization process as well as some other medications in the table below.
Angiotensin II Receptor Blockers (ARBs) & Renin
Effective June 1, 2009
The following four medications, which are covered as a medical benefit, will also require Prior Authorization, effective
June 1, 2009: Actemra, Cinryze, Numax, Nplate. These medications are typically administered in a health care provider’s
Health Net POS and PPO members will be notified via letter on March 1 of these changes and also receive the entire list
of drugs that require prior authorization if they have a 3-Tier prescription drug plan. Please see the attached member letter
and complete Prior Authorization list for your reference.
