Important changes will come with new pharmacy benefit manager

Beginning Jan. 1, 2016, OptumRx will become our new pharmacy benefit manager. With this change there will also be a new medication exception/prior authorization form, as well as a new fax number for submitting your forms.

Throughout December, Samaritan staff will be visiting pharmacies and primary care clinics to deliver your new forms, discuss these changes and answer your questions.
