Some prescription insurance plans have an annual deductible. This is the amount you must pay each year for your prescriptions before your prescription insurance begins to pay its share of your covered drugs.
Generally, when a prescription insurance plan applies a deductible, you will pay the approximate full cost of your medications until you have paid the deductible. Once the deductible is met, you will then only pay your portion or “copay” for your covered medications.
Most deductibles are annual meaning it will restart each plan year. Common plan year start dates are September 1 or January 1.
At any time, you may contact your prescription insurance plan to find out if you have a deductible, how much the deductible is, how much you have currently paid toward that deductible, and when the deductible will restart.
A prior authorization is an extra step that some insurance companies require for certain medications. If your medication requires a prior authorization, it means the insurance company needs more information from the prescribing doctor before they can decide if they want to pay for it.
Becoming familiar with the prior authorization process may enable you to get your medicine approved faster. But beware, not all medicines will be approved. Even if you do everything right, the insurance company may still refuse to cover your medicine. In the end, the insurance company is the one making the decision.
You may contact your insurance at any time to find out why your medication requires a prior authorization, how long it will take and what you can expect to pay if the authorization is approved.
The prior authorization process may need to be renewed each year, or possibly every month depending on your insurance company.
