Pharmacy Prior Authorization Info and Forms
Acentra Health is North Dakota Medicaid's Prior Authorization Vendor. Per federal law, state Medicaid programs may require, as a condition of coverage or payment for a covered outpatient drug, the prior approval of the drug before it is dispensed for any medically accepted indication.
The 2003 Legislative Assembly passed House Bill 1430. This restructured the existing Drug Use Review (DUR) Board and required the Board to advise the Department of Health & Human Services in developing a Prior Authorization (PA) process to help assure that beneficiaries receive appropriate medications in the most cost-effective manner, thus conserving state expenditures for drugs whenever possible.
