Update: Emergency Care and Controlled Substances


Harvard Pilgrim recently updated our Emergency Care Payment Policy to underscore the importance of meeting state and federal rules that apply when a Schedule II, III, or IV controlled substance is prescribed, including any mandated review through a prescription drug monitoring program.

Harvard Pilgrim may review claims to ensure that prescriptions are medically appropriate and that a prescription monitoring program is being used as necessary.

For more information, please refer to the updated Emergency Care Payment Policy.
