Prior Authorization

This means that you will need to get approval from IU Health Plans (HMO) (HMOPOS) before you fill your prescriptions for some drugs. If you don't get approval, IU Health Plans (HMO) (HMOPOS) may not cover the drug. You can find out which drugs require prior authorization by reviewing the IU Health Plans (HMO) (HMOPOS) Formulary. Usually, your physician or other prescribers will have to give us information about your medical condition or previous prescriptions in order to receive prior authorization.

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.

Members who would like to request a prior authorization or check on the status of a prior authorization request submitted by their physician or other prescriber should contact our Member Services Department 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., seven days a week:
