BCN Advantage HMO-POSSM 2012 Step
Therapy and Prior Authorization
requirements outlined for Providers

The goal of the BCN Pharmacy department is to ensure that all members receive high-quality, cost-effective pharmaceutical care. To meet this objective, BCN Advantage requires prior authorization for certain medications, and clinical criteria must be met before coverage is approved. Clinical criteria are based on current medical information and recommendations of BCBSM/BCN’s Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee. In addition, as required by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, drugs that can be processed under either Part B or Part D may require prior authorization in order to determine how to process the claim. Drugs that are covered under Part B, based on the member’s circumstance, cannot be processed as a Part D claim. To request an override of one of BCN’s drug utilization management tools, health care providers should contact the Clinical Pharmacy Help Desk at 800-437-3803, Monday-Friday, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Responses to requests for coverage determinations are made within 72 hours. The provider should alert the Pharmacy Help Desk if the request is urgent. Urgent requests include requests for drugs without which the BCN Advantage member’s life, health or ability to regain maximum function would be jeopardized or that, in the opinion of the prescriber with knowledge of the member’s condition, would subject the member to severe pain that cannot be adequately managed without the care or treatment requested. The provider should consider these criteria when providing documentation if the request is urgent. A response to these requests will be provided within 24 hours.
ST = Step Therapy. If prior authorization criteria are met in member’s medication pharmacy
claims history, the medication will process at the pharmacy without need for further authorization.
PA = Prior Authorization. Medications must be prior authorized using the procedure described
above before the medication will process at the pharmacy.
