Expanded Access to Medications During COVID-19 Pandemic
The PFK Pharmacy team has been in communication with the Ohio Medicaid managed care plans regarding the actions they are taking to facilitate medication access at pharmacies throughout the PFK network during this time. Changes to medication accessibility for patients at the pharmacy may include the following:
• Automatic overrides in place for refill too soon rejections
• 90-day supplies at the pharmacy level*
• Emergency and early refills
*The PFK Pharmacy team recommends writing prescription orders for 90-day supplies for maintenance medications, when possible and appropriate.
