Prior authorization is required for all non-preferred nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaids) and COX-2 inhibitors. Prior
authorization is not required for preferred nsaids or COX-2 inhibitors. 1. Requests for a non-preferred nsaid must document
previous trials and therapy failures with at least three preferred nsaids. 2. Requests for a non-preferred COX-2 inhibitor must
document previous trials and therapy failures with three preferred nsaids, two of which must be preferred COX-2 preferentially
selective nsaids. 3) Requests for a non-preferred topical nsaid must document previous trials and therapy failures with three
preferred nsaids. The trials must include two preferred COX-2 preferentially selective nsaids and the oral drug of the same
chemical entity. In addition, the use of a topical delivery system must be deemed medically necessary. 4) Requests for a non-
preferred extended release nsaid must document previous trials and therapy failures with three preferred nsaids, one of which
must be the preferred immediate release nsaid of the same chemical entity at a therapeutic dose that resulted in a partial
response with a documented intolerance. The required trials may be overridden when documented evidence is provided that use
of these agents would be medically contraindicated.
