ATTENTION: PLEASE READ BELOW BEFORE MAKING A PRESCRIPTION REFILL REQUESTS
Your Florida Blue pharmacy network is changing to help you save. Good news!
Starting January 1, Walgreens will be in your network, if you have myBlue, BlueSelect, BlueOptions and BlueCare.
If you have refills for any of your medications at CVS, please take the time to transfer your prescriptions to the Walgreens of your preference. This will save you time and prevent any delays in refilling your prescriptions.
We unfortunately cannot transfer them for you or send new prescriptions to Walgreens, if you still have refills at CVS. Since, so many of our patients will be affected by this change, we simply do not have the staffing to facilitate these changes for our patients.
CVS pharmacies that will no longer be in your network in 2017:
Bear Creek Pharmacy, Care Pharmacy, Care Plus CVS/Pharmacy, CarePlus, CarePlus CVS Pharmacy, Longs Drug Store, Longs Pharmacy, Navarro Discount Pharmacy, Navarro Health Services, RxAmerica, Target Pharmacy and Wellness Works Pharmacy
This form is for existing patients to request prescription refills.
Refills may take up to 48 business hours to process.
(The office is closed Sunday & Monday)
This form is NOT for Prior Authorizations and Schedule II controlled substance prescription refills, such as Adderall, Lortab, Percocet, Vicodin; etc. An office visit is required every month for these prescriptions.
- Medications requiring prior authorizations do take longer (up to 14 business days) to process. Pharmacies are responsible for sending the Authorization request, if we DO NOT receive the request, we don’t/won’t know you need one. PA’s are done electronically and NEVER called in.
- We may need to contact you regarding your request.
- Paper (hardcopy) prescriptions will be given to patients for mail order refills and controlled substance medications.
- We will deny certain requests without an office visit to adhere to DEA guidelines.
Please call to make an appointment if you are requesting new medication prescription that one of our physicians has not provided previously.
Prior authorizations are being increasingly required by insurance carriers. In an effort to control costs, carriers necessitate that physicians provide “proof” that patients need certain medications. This is usually done through supplemental forms, labs or additional phone calls. The end result, unfortunately, may be a denial or longer wait time for a medication. We realize this can be frustrating for our patients, but the extra time required for these processes is tremendous. As we try to assist everyone with their individual medication needs, please be patient if your particular drug requires prior authorization.
Pursuant to Florida State Legislative Bill CS/CS/HB 7095 (effective July 1, 2011), our physicians can no longer write prescriptions for certain controlled substances. If you need pain medications, you will be referred to Pain Management. These rules apply to NEW and EXISTING patients. If you have any questions about these rules, please speak with your doctor.
