Indication Based Prescribing
Medicare part D insurers are changing the way they look at drugs.
WHAT is it
Prescribing is Changing
In 2020, Medicare part D insurers will have the option of accepting or denying prescription coverage based on the reason for the prescription. Documenting the reason for each prescription will be required if providers want to avoid insurance coverage issues and administrative headaches.
This practice (called indication-based formulary) is currently not part of EMR systems (except for opioids) as prescriptions are currently not indication based but GoToPills is.
