For your safety, the number of opioid drug(s) to treat your pain will be limited based on recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). You may see a reduced quantity of your opioid prescription(s) when you get them filled at a network pharmacy. The quantity you receive will vary based on the opioid drug your provider has prescribed. Any Opioid prescriptions for larger quantities greater than recommended by the CDC will require a prior authorization. There are additional limitations depending on whether you have used an opioid drug previously or whether you are using the opioid drug for short-term or long-term use for pain relief.
