Electronic Prior Authorization (ePA) for the Pharmacy Benefit

January 2022

Electronic Prior Authorization (ePA) is a fully electronic solution that processes requests for prior authorizations (PA), Step Therapy, and Quantity Limit exceptions at a near real-time decision, allowing patients to start therapy sooner.

  • ePA is easily accessible through a web-based portal, such as Covermymeds, or may be integrated into your Electronic Health Record (EHR) platform.

ePA is easy to use and decreases administrative burden by reducing the back and forth between provider offices and Neighborhood. Providers answer a drug-specific PA question set and attach relevant documents, lab results, and/or provider notes, if necessary.

  • Eliminate hand-written faxed PA requests!
