Mail order pharmacy services

Or, if they prefer, they can get the medications mailed to their provider's office. They can start the mail-order process by completing a mail-order request form or signing up online.

By mail They can call Mercy Care RBHA Member Services at 1-800-564-5465; (TTY/TDD 711) to request a mail-order form. Or, download a mail-order service form here: English | Spanish

Online
They can also register for mail order with CVS Caremark at www.caremark.com. Once they've registered, they can order refills, renew prescriptions and check their orders.

Prescription Drug Benefits

Pharmacy Network Changes 

Effective February 3, 2020, Mercy Care Medicaid members will be transitioned to a network with CVS Caremark that continues to meet member access requirements but may offer fewer pharmacy providers.

As of 2/3/2020, Walgreens Pharmacy will no longer be in Mercy Care’s Medicaid pharmacy network.

Mercy Care network pharmacies include:

  • Any CVS Pharmacy® (including those inside Target® stores), Walmart, Safeway, Fry’s, Albertson’s and Sam’s Club
  • Most local neighborhood pharmacies
  • Many hospital pharmacies

Our Medicaid pharmacy network directory is available on our website at mercycareaz.org. Click on “Find a Provider/Pharmacy”. Please be aware that Walgreens pharmacies will still show in the directory until February 2.
Members may also contact Mercy Care Member Services for assistance in locating a pharmacy near them.

What this means to you:

  • If you electronically transmit or call in prescriptions for members, please be sure the pharmacy is not a Walgreens pharmacy on or after February 3, 2020.

If you have questions or require more information, please contact your Provider Relations representative.

IMPORTANT: Read this notice regarding pharmacy network changes

 

Learn more about member drug benefits, view formularies and formulary updates. Help your patients get the prescription drugs they need in an easy and cost effective way.

 

You now have the ability to use the new Formulary Search Tool to find out which medications are on the formulary drug lists. You can search by drug name or drug class. The search tool will show formulary status, generic alternatives and if there are any requirements, such as prior authorization, quantity limits or age limits. The formularies can change.

Some prescriptions require prior authorization from Mercy Care before they can be filled. Requests for medications requiring Prior Authorization (PA) will be reviewed based on the PA Guidelines/Criteria for that medication.

Medications that do not have a specific PA guideline will follow the Non-Formulary Medication Guideline. Additional information may be required on a case-by-case basis to allow for adequate review.

Mercy Care requires prior authorization for certain drugs on the Preferred Drug List and for all non-formulary drug requests.

You may now request prior authorization by calling 602-263-3000 or toll-free 1-800-624-3879, or you may print the required prior authorization form below and fax it along with supporting clinical notes to 1-800-854-7614.

If the drug you are requesting is not listed, please use the Non-Formulary PA request form. Most drugs will require use of the Non-Formulary PA form. If you would like a prior authorization request form faxed to you, please contact the Mercy Care Pharmacy Prior Authorization team at 602-263-3000 or toll free 1-800-624-3879.

These are fax forms for drugs in our prior authorization program. Select the drug name to download the prior authorization request form.

We are committed to making sure our providers receive the best possible information, and the latest technology and tools available.

We have partnered with CoverMyMeds® and SureScripts to provide you a new way to request a pharmacy prior authorization through the implementation of Electronic Prior Authorization (ePA) program.

With Electronic Prior Authorization (ePA), you can look forward to:

  • Time saving
    • Decreasing paperwork, phone calls and faxes for requests for prior authorization

How to order specialty drugs for patients
CVS Caremark Specialty Pharmacy offers medications that are not often available at local pharmacies for a variety of conditions, such as cancer, hemophilia, immune deficiency, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis.

Specialty medications require prior authorization before they can be filled and delivered. These medications can be delivered to the provider’s office, member’s home or other location as requested.

For providers who prefer to purchase the specialty drug and bill through the member’s Medical Insurance:

  • Call 602-263-3000 or toll-free at 1-800-624-3879 to initiate prior authorization for the requested specialty medication. 

For providers who prefer to bill through the member’s Pharmacy Insurance directly: 

Complete the applicable Pharmacy Prior Authorization form and fax it to 1-800-854-7614.
