Easy Prior Authorizations with CoverMyMeds

Submitting prescriptions electronically via ePrescribe is the fastest and most convenient method for submitting prescriptions. ePrescribing can save time for you and  your staff, leaving more time to focus on patient care.

How to submit an ePrescription

Add the Optum Specialty Pharmacy profile in your electronic medical record (EMR) system using the information below to send the prescription directly to us. Before submitting, take the following steps to minimize delays, additional outreach, and avoid cancellation.

  • Verify prescription medication name, formulation, frequency, strength, directions, quantity, DAW, ICD-10 and number of refills are complete.
  • If using ePrescribe, ensure you are selecting the address, NPI number and NCPDP number specific to your region's location here.
  • Verify inclusion of collaborating/supervising physician information as required for midlevel practitioners. To confirm requirements for your state, click here.
  • Verify clinical information is sent using our electronic prior authorization option, via fax to your regional pharmacy location or by downloading our Enrollment Form and faxing to your regional pharmacy location.
  • Prior authorization assistance may be provided by Optum Specialty Pharmacy or electronic prior authorization (ePA) submission through CoverMyMeds. Please note: Not all insurance plans accept ePA submissions.
  • If patient is initiating therapy please provide starter dose or maintenance dose as required. Please indicated if patient has already started therapy.
  • If you prescribe controlled substances, ensure your practice’s EMR software is certified and approved for EPCS. We will require ePrescribing (eRx) for all controlled substances starting 1/1/2020.
