Tools for managing prescriptions

We’ve laid out some important details that can help guide you through the prescription process.

It’s important to us that you have all the right resources and information you need when helping our members get effective treatment. To make the prescription process easier for you and members try searching our drug list, scanning formulary updates, reading our outpatient pharmacy disclosure, and finding  how members can get prescriptions delivered by mail. 

Requesting prior authorization

If you would like to prescribe a medication that is currently not covered by Sharp Health Plan, you’ll need to fill out the Prior Authorization Request form and give us any relevant support or documentation. Once the form is complete, we can review your request.


Generic vs brand name medications

Our formulary includes many commonly-prescribed medications. When a generic equivalent is available, it must be dispensed instead of the brand-name drug, unless your doctor specifies otherwise. Check out "Covered medications" in the FAQ to learn more.
