Due to Hurricane Irma in the State of South Carolina, Governor McMaster declared a state of emergency.
Your health and safety are our primary concerns, and if you leave your home to avoid this emergency, we do not want any undue barriers to keep you from getting your medication or seeing a medical professional.
For our members who live in one of these impacted areas, we have removed the refill-too-soon edits for your medications and removed the out-of-network authorization requirements for out-of-network providers. You must still use Medicaid-certified facilities and providers.
Prior authorization for medical services or medication may still be needed for medical necessity. This change is in effect until the emergency notice is closed or October 6, 2017, whichever is earlier.
