On Jan. 8, updates to the Statewide Preferred Drug List (PDL) went into effect and existing prior authorizations were terminated. However, the process for requesting drug authorization from GHP Family remains the same. You can refer to the 2024 statewide PDL.

Your GHP Family patients were notified that their current medication(s) may no longer be covered without prior authorization. Consider your impacted patients and prescribed medications to determine if a drug should be switched to a preferred alternative, or if a request for prior authorization to remain on a current drug is more appropriate. 

If a pharmacy claim denies because prior authorization is required, your patient is entitled to either a 15-day supply when the prescription qualifies as an ongoing medication or a five-day supply for a new medication.
