Meridian Prior Prescription (Rx) Authorization Form
The Meridian Medication Prior Authorization Form is one that can be used to request coverage for a prescription medication. An authorization request of this variety will need to be completed by the healthcare provider and sent either online through the Meridian Prior Authorization website or via fax using the state-specific forms linked on this webpage. Alternative medication is usually granted coverage providing that formulary medication has been attempted prior to the submission of a prior authorization form. Evidence of previously attempted treatments will often strengthen the case of the requester.
