Rcopia: Electronic Prior Authorization (ePA+)

The electronic prior authorization process (ePA+) is integrated into your e-prescribing workflow in Rcopia.

To begin the process:

1. Go to your patient's profile as you normally would to prescribe a medication:

  1. Search for your patient's name
  2. Select your patient to view their profile
  3. As always, start prescribing a new medication using the Create a New Prescription button

2. Search for the medication name. You may see a PA label associated with the dose you want to select for the medication. This is an early indication that you will require Prior Authorization for this medication.

3. Complete prescription instructions for the medication on the sig screen.

4. Next, when you review the prescription, you will see a red badge indicating Prior Authorization is needed. You may initiate the Prior Authorization by selecting Start PA in that badge.
