Dose Optimization Program

  • If you take multiple doses of lower strength medications, Premera’s Dose Optimization Program can help you, your doctor and your pharmacist to find a single dose of higher strength medications (with your doctor’s approval).

    Here’s How the Program Works:

    • When an eligible prescription drug is filled or refilled, we send you a letter telling you about the option of taking just one pill, once a day. You then contact your doctor or pharmacist to discuss changing the prescription.
    • The next time your prescription is refilled at your pharmacy, the pharmacist is notified by computer messaging to call your doctor for approval to change the prescription.
    • If your doctor approves the change, your prescription is updated.
    • If your doctor does not approve the change, a benefit exception is completed so that you can continue the prescription as prescribed by your doctor.
