Special Notice—Asthma Controller Medications

To aid in patient compliance and effectiveness of treatment, Jai Medical Systems is increasing the allowed days supply rule for certain asthma controller medications. If your patient is on a formulary asthma controller medication, you may now write for up to a 90 day supply. You may also give the patient up to 3 refills. This is true for formulary medications, with or without a prior authorization.

If your patient is on a non-formulary medication that has been approved based on medical necessity, they too may receive up to a 90 day supply. New authorizations for medical necessity will be required, as appropriate.
