If you’re new to Unity (a member for less than 90 days), you may be taking medicines that need a Prior Authorization for coverage.
Check Unity’s Formularies to see if your medications need Prior Authorization. If they do, you or your pharmacist can request a “New Member Drug Supply.” Just call Unity Pharmacy Services at (800) 788-2949 to ask for it.
If approved, Unity will authorize coverage for these drugs for up to 90 days (in 30-day increments at the usual copayment). After those 90 days, prior authorization will be required for additional coverage. In the meantime, you can talk to the doctor who prescribed the medicine. The doctor can discuss your options.
- This policy only applies to medications that a member was taking prior to joining Unity. Standard copays based on the member’s drug benefit and formulary status of the medication apply.
