Here are some reasons you may need approval for your medication:

  • The state or federal government requires Humana to review certain prescription requests
  • A lower-cost alternative medication may treat the same condition
  • The medication may have side effects or require special monitoring
  • The medication may be dangerous if taken with another medication you’re taking
  • The medication should only be taken for certain health conditions
  • The medication is a controlled substance or is more likely to be abused or misused
