CoverMyMeds is an online tool for electronic completion and submission of benefit prior authorization (PA) requests for prescription drugs that are part of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) pharmacy PA program.
You must be a BCBSIL independently contracted provider to use CoverMyMeds. The tool is available for most BCBSIL members whose pharmacy benefits are administered by Prime Therapeutics.*
Using CoverMyMeds replaces the need to fax paper PA request forms to BCBSIL. Additionally, it provides immediate confirmation upon receipt, without the need to call to check status or resubmit requests.
- To submit an electronic PA request, go to the CoverMyMeds login page.
- For general assistance, visit the CoverMyMeds Support Center.
A link to CoverMyMeds is also available to registered users on the AvailityTM Web portal, under the Authorizations menu.

Please note that the fact that a service has been preauthorized/pre-certified is not a guarantee of payment. Benefits will be determined once a claim is received and will be based upon, among other things, the member’s eligibility and the terms of the member’s certificate of coverage applicable on the date services were rendered. Members should refer to their certificate of coverage for more details, including benefits, limitations and exclusions. Regardless of benefits, the final decision about any medication is between the member and their health care provider.
