Emergency Medication Supply

In compliance with state rules, the Alliance will cover a three-day supply of drugs for you in emergency situations. This policy applies to drugs that normally would require a prior authorization or exceptions request. Emergency situations include:

  • A recent discharge from an emergency room (ER)
  • A recent discharge from the hospital
  • Any event that involves an imminent and serious threat, including (but not limited to) severe pain, potential loss of life, limb, or major bodily function.

Contracted Alliance pharmacies can help you obtain an emergency supply. There are nearly 200 of these pharmacies in our network! You can find a location using the Pharmacy Search.

After the three-day supply is over, your provider will need to submit a prior authorization request as described by the Pharmacy Prior Authorization Process.
