Drugs that appear on the quantity limits list and meet the quantity limit criteria require a quantity limit override form and approval.

High dose opioids criteria and limits may be found on the formulary PA Drug List.

Important Notes:

  • All limits are per 30 days, except where otherwise noted (ie Zofran/ anti- emetics).
  • In addition to the limits listed, all specialty drugs are limited to a 30-day supply. If you aren't sure if your drug is a specialty drug, please call the pharmacy customer service number on the back of your card.
