Prior Authorization Criteria

SWH Whole Health FIDA Plan requires you (or your physician) to get prior authorization for certain drugs. This means that you will need to get approval through your Interdisciplinary Team (IDT) before you fill your prescriptions. If you don't get approval, SWH Whole Health FIDA Plan may not cover the drug. The following document provides a list of drugs that require prior authorization.

Contract Termination

If your prescription drug coverage is provided under a contract with Medicare, your coverage is not guaranteed beyond the end of the current contract year. In the event that Medicare or SWH Whole Health FIDA Plan terminates or chooses not to renew the contract between SWH Whole Health FIDA Plan and Medicare, as allowed by law, this may end your coverage. If this occurs, you will be able to choose another plan without incurring a late enrollment penalty, as long as you do so within the time period required by Medicare.
