Pharmacy Mail Order Vendor Change effective 1/1/22 – Commercial Only

Non-Specialty Pharmacy

A new preferred home delivery pharmacy and/or a new option for certain member’s maintenance medication needs is being changed from Alliance to Express Scripts Pharmacy®.

Existing, non-expired, maintenance medication prescriptions for commercial patients will automatically be transferred to Express Scripts Pharmacy by January 1, 2022. Any open prior authorizations for drugs continuing to be covered on the formulary will be carried over to Express Scripts Pharmacy. After January 1, 2022, you will need to send any new prescriptions to Express Scripts Pharmacy if these patients want to continue to utilize a home delivery service.

Some prescriptions will not be automatically moved and you will need to send a new prescription to Accredo on or after January 1, 2022. These include:

  • Controlled substances
  • Medicines regulated by a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) program
  • Prescriptions that will expire before January 1, 2022
  • Prescriptions that have no refills left on January 1, 2022
  • New prescriptions that have not been filled at AllianceRx Walgreens Prime

Prescriptions can be easily sent to Express Scripts Pharmacy using your EMR system by e-prescribing to Express Scripts Home Delivery. For questions on e-prescribing call 1-800-211-1456 option 5.
