Re:​ Anticonvulsant Medications​

Effective immediately, in accordance with Public Act 098-0104 (pdf), the department will not require prior approval or Four Prescription Policy overrides for anticonvulsants for participants who have a diagnosis of epilepsy or seizure disorder according to department records.

Please note that any prescriptions for anticonvulsants filled when a participant is initially diagnosed with a seizure disorder may still require a prior approval or a Four Prescription Policy override as the diagnosis will not yet appear in department records.

Questions regarding this notice should be directed to the Bureau of Professional and Ancillary Services at 1-877-782-5565, Option 7.
