A New Tool to Overcome Access Barriers to Spacer-Compatible Inhaled Steroids

Since the discontinuation of brand name Flovent®, there have been many challenges with patient access to spacer-compatible inhaled steroids that are appropriate for children with asthma. Even though fluticasone propionate HFA (authorized generic of Flovent®), is a covered option for Ohio Medicaid patients, there still may be shortages at the pharmacy to overcome. In response, Partners For Kids has created a pathway to guide decision-making when prescribing inhaled steroids for children.  Included in this resource is standard language that will assist with proper communication to insurance companies if a prior authorization is requested. 

If you have questions, please reach out to the Partners For Kids pharmacy team at PFKPharmacy@NationwideChildrens.org.
