I was told a prior authorization is needed to cover Contrave® (naltrexone / bupropion). What is that?
Prior authorization is paperwork requested by your insurance carrier to justify the use of Contrave® (naltrexone / bupropion). Some insurance plans will require a prior authorization be completed in order to cover the cost of Contrave. Your healthcare provider will complete the paperwork. Unfortunately this is not a guarantee of coverage.
