Future Scripts Prior Prescription (Rx) Authorization Form
The Future Scripts General Prior Authorization Request Form is a document that can be faxed into Future Scripts to request coverage for a medication which is generally not on the company’s formulary. The prescriber will need to provide justification for selecting the medication in question to treat the patient’s symptoms. Often previous drugs and treatments have been applied prior to administering this form; each one should be detailed within the form to strengthen the case for coverage.
