Medications Covered Under Medical Benefits vs. Under Pharmacy Benefit
Some medications are covered under our medical benefit, while others are covered under our pharmacy benefit. Member cost-share may be different based on which benefit is used. While not all-inclusive, this comparative list will help educate you about the differences between the two classifications.
Medications Included in Site-of-Care Program
Below is a link to the list of drugs currently included in the Site-of-Care program and that must be provided by Optum Infusion Services. These infused drugs also require prior authorization for use.
Opioid Management Program
True Health New Mexico members are subject to the CVS/Caremark Opioid Management program. This program limits the dose/quantity of opioids that members can receive. If a member exceeds the limitations, prior authorization is required.
In general, prior authorization can be satisfied by providing a copy of the member’s current treatment plan, a risk assessment evaluation, and a copy of the member’s opioid contract. Prescribers may also attest to use of these specific tools.
Prescribers should fax prior authorization requests for opioids to True Health New Mexico Pharmacy Services at 1-866-718-7938.
Below are several resources to help True Health New Mexico providers manage their patients who are taking opioids. True Health New Mexico providers are not required to use these resources; they are offered as a convenience.
