Reimbursement is generally based on the maximum amount allowed for the prescription less your copayment and deductible, if applicable, and may not be the same amount you paid. To avoid paying more for your prescriptions, be sure to use your prescription benefit card at participating pharmacies.

Drug lists are typically divided into different categories or “tiers”. Usually these include: generic (tier one), preferred brand (tier two), non-preferred brand (tier three), and specialty medications (often referred to as tier four). The copay you are responsible for paying at the pharmacy is determined by what tier level your medication falls into.

Some medications, due to cost, type or prescription benefit plan, will require a prior authorization before they are covered. Prior authorization is designed to help prevent you from being prescribed medications you may not need, those that could interact dangerously with others you may be taking or those that are potentially addictive. It is also a way to help ensure that you are getting the most cost-effective drug for your condition.

Prior authorizations can be complex, but ProAct is here to help! If your prescription is denied due to a prior authorization requirement, DO NOT LEAVE THE PHARMACY. You or your pharmacist should call ProAct’s 24/7/365 Help Desk (1-877-635-9545) immediately for a resolution.

Your physician can start the prior authorization review process by visiting proactrx.promptpa.com to obtain medication specific request forms. Once we receive a completed prior authorization request form from your physician, we conduct a clinical review within 48–72 hours. We will send you and your physician appropriate communication regarding your request.

When ProAct Pharmacy Services receives a prescription electronically, by phone, fax or mail, we start to process your order to get it to you quickly. Your order may have been processed because:

  • Your physician placed an order on your behalf.

Based on your prescription benefit plan, a specific brand-name or generic medication may have been dispensed. You can find out whether your prescription has been filled with a generic medication by calling ProAct Pharmacy Services at 1-866-287-9885.

Brand-name drugs have a 17-year patent that limits production to a single manufacturer. After the patent expires, other companies can manufacture a “generic” of the brand-name drug. The generic has been approved by the FDA and required to follow the same safety guidelines as the brand-name. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) requires that all generic drugs have the same active ingredient, strength and dosage form as the brand-name drug. Generic drugs must prove to the FDA that they are the same. This is known as bioequivalence.  

Your medication may look different because a different manufacturer produced it.

Please call ProAct Pharmacy Services (1-866-287-9885) any time that you have a question regarding the look of your medication.

Your prescription label can also be useful tool. Using the sample label below for reference, verify that your prescription label has the same drug, strength and dosage form that you expected. If this is correct, then you can match the imprint that is on the physical medication with the imprint listed on your prescription label. If the imprint does not match or if the medication, strength or dosage form listed on the label is different than what you were expecting, please call ProAct Pharmacy Services at 1-866-287-9885 to verify. Please note, not all imprints may be listed on the label.

Controlled substances are prescription medications that are regulated and classified by the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) due to their ability to cause abuse and dependence. A more strict set of regulations must be followed compared to a non-controlled prescription medication.

Certain controlled substances may be eligible to be dispensed through the mail order. State and federal regulations may impact the fulfillment of your medication. Please contact ProAct Pharmacy Services at 1-866-287-9885 for specific questions on the processing of controlled substances.

Yes. The medication you receive via mail order is safe to take and sourced from the same suppliers as local retail pharmacies. We maintain rigorous safety standards for the inventory in our pharmacies and only dispense medications that are approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for the US market. All drugs are approved for use in the US and must comply with FDA manufacturing standards to assure quality and product label requirements.

ProAct Pharmacy Services only dispenses medications that are approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for the US market.

Specialty medications are used to treat complex, chronic conditions like cancer, inflammatory conditions, rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis. Specialty medications are typically higher-cost and sometimes require special handling and administration such as injection or infusion. Additionally, patients using a specialty medication may need careful oversight from a healthcare provider who can watch for side effects and ensure that the medication is working as intended.

ProAct’s specialty pharmacy is Noble Health Services (Noble). Our experts at Noble strive to support patients in all aspects of therapy and always provide the utmost care—from prescription needs and medication therapy management to financial guidance. Emergency, on-call support is available 24/7/365 via the toll-free number (1-888-843-2040). www.noblehealthservices.com

Employees at specialty pharmacies fulfill completely different duties than a retail pharmacy by using a unique skill set to navigate the complexities between you, insurance providers, and physicians. They are patient advocates—helping with prior authorizations, copay assistance, clinical management and therapy adherence.

Your physician starts the process by sending your prescription to Noble. Noble will reach out to you to verify your information. Noble works together with your physician and ProAct to obtain the necessary approvals. Once approval is received, Noble reaches out to you to enroll you any copay assistance programs (if desired); coordinate delivery to a location of your choice; and take payment. Your prescription is filled and the medication, along with any ancillary supplies, is shipped next day delivery. It is important that someone is available to sign for the delivery as many specialty medications are shipped with manufacturer required temperature controls, such as cold packs for refrigerated items.

With Noble, you will receive ongoing support and education from the clinical team. Clinical support programs are designed to help ensure you remain adherent to your therapy regimen and in overall good health. Noble will reach out to you to ensure you are ready for a refill.

Maintenance medications are prescription drugs that you take regularly on a long-term basis. These medications treat chronic conditions or needs such as: asthma, diabetes, birth control, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and arthritis. A maintenance medication can also be a drug that you take for three to six months and then discontinue. For example, an allergy medication that you take throughout the spring and summer could be considered a maintenance medication.

Caring people are never more than a phone call away, any time of day. We’re always here when you need us. Support is available 24/7/365 by calling the ProAct Help Desk at 1-877-635-9545. You may also email us at: Support@ProActRx.com.
