PRESCRIPTION PRIOR AUTHORIZATION NOTIFICATION
Subject: STAR Kids Prescription/Pharmacy Prior Authorizations Reinstated 4/15/17
Effective 4/15/17, Texas Children’s Health Plan (TCHP) will enforce pharmacy prior authorization (PA) requirements for STAR Kids members
STAR Kids members who received a prescription between 11/1/16-4/15/17 were not subject to normal PA requirements. PA requirements were temporarily lifted during this period to help facilitate the transition to STAR Kids.
After 4/15/17, all prescriptions for STAR Kids members will be subject to normal PA documentation, including non-preferred drugs and drugs that require clinical edits. Some of your patients may have active prescriptions that require a prior authorization in order to be refilled after 4/15/17.
TCHP has mailed you a list of patients and medications that require PA documentation. Please submit prior authorizations for these members. Please contact your Texas Children’s Health Plan Provider Relations Manager for any questions.
