    Pharmacy Direct Member Reimbursement If you have paid out of pocket for a prescription and are looking to be reimbursed through the plan, please contact Pharmacy Customer Service before submitting a DMR Form. Pharmacy Customer Service will work with you to contact your pharmacy to assist them in processing claims electronically. This is the quickest process as the pharmacy can refund you onsite. If the pharmacy is unwilling to submit electronically, then Pharmacy Customer Service will assist you in filing a DMR. (Please note: the DMR process can take up to 30 days to complete and does not include any network discounts that the pharmacy would have written off per contract.) Please contact Pharmacy Customer Service for questions or assistance in submitting a reimbursement request for a prescription.
    Brand - Generic Charge Brand-Generic Charge is applied if you receive a Brand name drug, regardless of reason or medical necessity, or if your provider prescribes a Brand name drug when a generic is available. A Brand-Generic Charge is the difference in cost from the Generic to the Brand name drug. This charge is added to the regular cost sharing outlined in your benefits summary. The Brand-Generic charge does not apply towards your Out-of-Pocket Max.
    Medications with Special Requirements Some medications have special requirements (Quantity Limits, Prior Authorization, and Step Therapy) that must be met before U of U Health Plans will cover them. This process must be completed by your doctor before you can fill a prescription.
    • Prior Authorization is needed for certain drugs listed on the preferred drug listed. In addition, all Specialty Medications (Tier 4) require prior authorization.
    • Step Therapy is a type of prior authorization for medications that require your provider to first prescribe and you to try alternative options that are generally more cost effective and that have proven effective for your condition before you can move up a “step” to a more expensive medication.
    • Quantity Limits is a set maximum of a quantity a medication that a person may have covered under the plan within a certain period of time for safety and cost reasons.
    Prior-Authorization To request submit a Prior-Authorization or Exception Request, the provider can either print and fax the forms for review or submit the request online
