72-Hour Emergency Supply Available for Pharmacy PA Drugs

72-Hour Emergency Supply Available for Pharmacy PA Drugs

A 72-Hour Emergency supply is available for Pharmacy Prior Authorization (PA) Drugs but many pharmacists, especially in retail chains (a recent study found) are unaware that federal law requires that a 72 hour emergency supply be available to Medicaid recipients for drugs requiring PAs. As such, your staff or patients themselves may need to remind pharmacists of this when PAs are in process in order to ensure access to medically necessary medications.
