In some cases, it is required that our members first try a certain medication to treat their medical condition before another medication is covered. For example, Medication A and Medication B both treat the member's medical condition. Medication B may not be covered unless the member tries Medication A first. If Medication A does not work for our member, Medication B will be covered.
