Draft Provider-Administered Drug Policies (Excluding Oncology)

Draft provider-administered drug policies are listed below. If there are no policies listed, it means there are currently no policies in draft status.

The drugs below require that a member’s medical condition meets the policy requirements prior to being given (precertification) unless otherwise specified. 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.

Currently, precertification is required for these provider-administered drugs when administered in a provider’s office or home health setting; precertification does not apply to inpatient hospital claims at this time.

Precertification for the drugs listed below is also required in the outpatient facility setting. Exceptions to this include: Luxturna, Kymriah and Yescarta, which require a precertification for any place of treatment.

Members can request a copy of a full drug policy, by calling the Customer Service number on their ID card.
