Pharmacy Prior Authorization
If a medication isn’t on the Upper Peninsula Health Plan’s formulary or if there is a restriction on a certain medication, it will need a prior authorization. Below are the prior authorization forms that should be filled out by your doctor and sent to the Upper Peninsula Health Plan for approval.
