Changes in BCBS pre-authorization medications effective Oct. 1st

We received a letter at the last JIC (Joint Insurance Committee) meeting. Please see the letter below. BCBS is going to be requiring pre-authorization for many medications (listed within this letter), many of which our clients are on.
