Part B Step Therapy Preferred Drug List

In August of 2018, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) rescinded its September 2012 memo “Prohibition on Imposing Mandatory Step Therapy for Access to Part B Drugs and Services,” and now allows Medicare Advantage (MA) plans to apply step therapy for physician-administered and other Part B drugs.

Step therapy is a type of prior authorization for drugs that require patients to initiate treatment for a medical condition with the most preferred drug therapy. Patients then progress to other therapies only if necessary.

Due to this recent change, CarePlus will require a review of some injectable drugs and biologics for step therapy requirements in addition to current review requirements. The affected drugs/devices are indicated on the Part B Step Therapy Preferred Drug List(link opens in new window).
