As you are aware Moda has partnered with MagellanRx to assist you in medical pharmacy management through the provider administered injectable medication program. Moda Health is committed to providing our members with access to high-quality healthcare. With this commitment in mind and to ensure quality care and affordability to our members, we will implement updates to our processes in regard to the review and approval of certain injectable medications.
The MagellanRx program applies to all fully insured Commercial membership. Select ASO, Medicare Advantage, PERS Medicare and non-Medicare membership will be added at this time as well. An additional 6 new HCPCs are being added to the prior authorization list of medications.
All in-network individual, ASO, small, and large group plans, Moda will deny services if required prior authorization is not obtained prior to rendering the service. If a prior authorization is not obtained for in-network services, Moda will deny charges as provider responsibility.
MagellanRx will review your prior authorization requests for the following specialty injectable medications that are performed in:
|Effective May 23, 2019|
|Effective July 18, 2019|
Injectable Medication Prior Authorization List (last updated 12/23/2019)
Beginning April 1, 2019, Moda, Ardon Health, and other participating specialty pharmacies will be expanding their management of specialty medications to include infused medications. This program expansion aims to provide consistent, quality service, improved reporting, and an enhanced member experience with lower member out-of-pocket costs.
For all applicable Oregon Moda Health commercial fully insured members, including group and individual members, select infused specialty medications will only be covered under the pharmacy benefit and claims submitted under the medical benefit will be denied as provider liability. Claims for the administration of the medication should continue to be billed to the member’s medical benefit.
|Effective April 1, 2019|
|Type||Brand name||Procedure code|
These prescriptions should be sent to Ardon Health or participating pharmacies for processing and fulfilment rather than being obtained through the “buy and bill” process.
Prior authorization for the infused specialty medications listed above may be completed by submitting the request through the CoverMyMeds ePA tool found at covermymeds.com, or by contacting Ardon Health or participating pharmacies directly.
This benefit change is currently applicable to Oregon commercial fully insured members, including group and individual members, and will also apply to OEBB members on October 1, 2019 and PEBB members on January 1, 2020. This does not currently apply to Moda Medicare Advantage, ASO, or OHP/EOCCO members. A complete list of groups for which these medications are covered under the medical benefit can be found below. For all other groups, coverage will be under the pharmacy benefit only. This list of medications included in this program will be reviewed annually.
