Let’s say you have diabetes and your doctor wants you to try a new diabetes medication. The medication your doctor prescribed may be on Humana’s list of drugs that requires prior authorization.

To see which medication requires prior authorization, search Humana's Drug List.

Note if your medication requires prior authorization and you fill your prescription without getting approval, you may be responsible for all expenses associated with the medication.
