L.A. Care's Pharmacy Services offers several resources and guidelines to assist you with prescribing medications to our members.

Medication Adherence

L.A. Care understands the challenges of medication adherence, and approaches this complex issue by working collaboratively with our physicians, pharmacists and members. We've outlined some steps to improve medication adherence, and also discuss some of the major coordination issues we all face.

Prescription Drug Prior Authorizations

Certain formulary medications and all non-formulary medications require a written Prior Authorization (PA) request to be submitted by the prescribing practitioner for our L.A. Care members. You can view policies on generic substitution, step therapy and other programs, as well as access forms.
