New process for requests to UNC Medication Assistance Program

With the implementation of Epic@UNC, there will be a new process using Epic@UNC to submit requests to the UNC Medication Assistance Program (MAP). Effective April 4, 2014, Medication Assistance Request Forms (MARF) will no longer be accepted.

All medication assistance requests can be forwarded to the UNC MAP team via the referral functionality within Epic. Epic referrals will be used for: 

  • Outpatient Clinic Infusion Prior Authorizations
  • Benefits Investigations for:
    • Outpatient Clinic Infusions
    • Specialty Medications filled at a UNC Owned Pharmacy
    • Copay Assistance for Specialty Medications filled at a UNC Owned Pharmacy
    • Manufacturer Assistance for uninsured patients receiving:
      • Outpatient Clinic Infusions
      • Specialty Medications

A complete listing of specialty medications can be found on the the Medication Assistance Program intranet site or by visiting this link.

There are 3 options to create and submit referrals to the UNC MAP Team:

  1. Submit an Oncology Outpatient Infusion Referral
  2. Submit a Non-Oncology Outpatient Infusion Referral
  3. Submit an Outpatient Specialty Medication Referral

Tip Sheets with details for creating and submitting the above referrals can be found on the Medication Assistance Program intranet site or by visiting this link.
