Informational Notice

To: Participating Pharmacies and Physicians
Re: Anticonvulsant Medications

Effective immediately, in accordance with Public Act 098-0104 (pdf), the department will not
require prior approval or Four Prescription Policy overrides for anticonvulsants for participants
who have a diagnosis of epilepsy or seizure disorder according to department records.
Please note that any prescriptions for anticonvulsants filled when a participant is initially
diagnosed with a seizure disorder may still require a prior approval or a Four Prescription Policy
override as the diagnosis will not yet appear in department records.

Questions regarding this notice should be directed to the Bureau of Professional and Ancillary
Services at 1-877-782-5565, Option 7.
