Provider-Administered Drug Policies (Excluding Oncology Drugs)
Provider-administered drugs require that a member’s medical condition meets the policy requirements prior to being given (precertification). Providers must submit a request for pre-service review in order to be approved. If the provider does not receive approval for precertification, the plan will pay no benefits.
