Prior authorization is one of FutureScripts' utilization management procedures. It requires that providers receive approval from FutureScripts before prescribing certain medications. This safeguard ensures that the drug prescribed is clinically appropriate for the plan participant and encourages the use of generic or lower-cost brand-name drugs as an alternative. Prior authorization also ensures that drugs prescribed for off-label use are done so in accordance with U.S. Food and Drug Administration guidelines.
