Quantity & Age Limitations
Prescription Management Program

Certain medications require Prior Authorization approval from the OPEH&W Health Plan before they will be covered. Types of Prior Authorizations include, but are not limited to, medications which exceed recommended quantity limitations, exceed recommended age limitations, and/or require clinical determinations for appropriate use. The OPEH&W Health Plan’s prescription vendor administers the Quantity & Age Limitation process on behalf of the OPEH&W Health Plan.
