Approved by payer – approves the medication prescribed by the provider (*PRIOR AUTHORIZATION CONFIRMATION NUMBER is required).

Forward – allows you to forward the request to another provider in practice.

Prior authorization not attempted – will deny the request and sends a denial message to the pharmacy.

Cancel - deny the change request and cancel the original prescription – will deny the request and cancels the original prescription.

Pharmacies may send Change Requests to ask providers to approve a generic substitute for the medication prescribed. This is a common request if pharmacies run out of the brand-name drug providers described in the prescription.
