Formulary Exception: Quantity Limits

For certain drugs, IU Health Plans (HMO) (HMOPOS) may limit the number of doses that you can receive during a set number of days. For example, IU Health Plans (HMO) (HMOPOS) provides nine tablets per prescription for Imitrex. This may be in addition to a standard one month or three month supply. You can ask us to waive the limit and cover more. Your physician or other prescriber must submit a statement of medical necessity that states why the quantity limit would not be as effective in treating your condition and/or would cause you to have adverse medical effects.

You can ask IU Health Plans (HMO) (HMOPOS) to make an exception to our coverage rules. If you are requesting an exception to the formulary rules (on prior authorization or other utilization management tool) you should submit a statement from your physician or other prescriber supporting your request.

Generally, we must make our decision within 72 hours of getting you or your physician’s or other prescribers' request for standard coverage determinations or 24 hours of getting you or your prescribing physician's request for an expedited coverage determination.
