*Physicians Plus has an expedited exception request procedure for non-formulary drugs that a member, member designee, pharmacy, or prescriber may initiate in exigent circumstances. Exigent circumstances exist when a member is suffering from a health condition that may seriously jeopardize the member's life, health, or ability to regain maximum function or when a member is undergoing a current course of treatment using the non-formulary drug. An expedited exception coverage determination will be handled within 24 hours when all the required information is provided. An expedited request should be clearly documented as an "Expedited Non-Formulary Exception Request."
