Fidelis Prior Prescription (Rx) Authorization Form
The Fidelis Prior Prescription (Rx) Authorization Form allows a prescribing physician to request coverage for a prescription drug. This document is not required if the drug is already on the insurance provider’s formulary; however, should all other formulary medications prove insufficient in treating the patient’s illness, coverage for non-preferred/non-formulary drugs can be obtained. The prescriber will need to fill out the below form in full, providing all medical justification for requesting the specific drug. Once completed, it can be faxed to Fidelis Care. Generally a response can be expected within three (3) business days.
