Drug Exceptions and Member Responsibilities

Network Health's Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee determines medication tiering and utilization management criteria based on clinical evidence, safety, cost and national recognized therapeutic guidelines. If your prescribed medication is not covered or partially covered, you or your prescriber can ask us to cover it. This is considered an exception.

Exceptions can be handled both externally and internally. Exceptions usually require a supporting statement from your prescriber explaining why alternative medications are not sufficient.

Common Exception Reasons

  • The requested drug is not on the formulary
  • The requested drug is part of a step therapy
  • A medical condition or drug interaction exists that may require use of the requested drug
  • The requested drug requires a prior authorization

How to Handle a Potential Exception

  • You can contact customer service at the number listed on the back of your member ID card for a list of similar drugs covered by Network Health. 
    • You can share this list with your prescriber and ask for a similar medication. 
    • Network Health formulary drugs are often less expensive and easier to obtain than non-formulary drugs.
  • Next, your prescriber must obtain a prior authorization for the exception. This is necessary to determine medical necessity.
    • Your prescriber can complete a prior authorization electronically or via fax and explain why an exception is required. 
    • Electronic requests can be done through portals such as CoverMyMeds® or ExpressPAth®
    • If the prescriber is unable to submit the request electronically, this paper form can be faxed to Express Scripts. 
    • If your prescriber has questions, he or she can call Express Scripts at 800-209-0981.  

A decision will be made regarding your exception within three business days of receiving all the necessary information–including the supporting prescriber statement. You can request an expedited decision if you or your doctor feel your health could be harmed by a three-day waiting period. If your expedited request is granted, a decision will be provided within 24 hours of receiving your doctor’s supporting statement.

  • If a prior authorization is denied, you can request an internal review by contacting customer service at the number listed on the back of your member ID card. 
    • The customer service representative can help you request an exception to cover your drug–he or she can direct you where to send the request.
    • When requesting an exception, a statement from your prescriber is often necessary to support the request for an exception. 
  • Examples of exceptions include the below.
    • You can ask us to cover your drug, even if it is not on our drug list.
    • You can ask us to remove coverage restrictions or limits on your drug.
    • If the internal review upholds the denial for a coverage exception, you will receive a written denial which will contain a form that you can complete and send back to request an external review by an independent review organization.

Prescription Drug Claim Form

If you purchased prescription drugs without presenting your ID card (due to an emergency or at non-participating pharmacy of medical facility), complete our prescription reimbursement claim form for consideration of reimbursement from ESI.
