A note about prior authorizations…

If your insurance company requires a prior authorization (PA) when you pick up your prescription, ask your pharmacy to fax the PA and insurance information to 781-860-1766.

Our office will handle the rest and contact you and the pharmacy once we hear from your insurance company about approval or rejection. Prior authorizations can take up to 10 days to process. If you are still waiting and need the medications before we receive an answer, you can pay out of pocket and your insurance company can reimburse you if the PA is approved.
