Sometimes, the prescription you take isn’t on your plan’s drug list, or it’s subject to certain limits. Start by talking to your doctor to see if there’s another medication on the drug list that you can switch to. If there isn’t an appropriate alternative drug, you or your doctor can ask for a formulary exception. Contact RMHP Customer Service to request a formulary exception. If it’s approved, you can continue taking your current medication for a certain period of time.
Whether you’re switching drugs or waiting for an exception approval, you may be eligible for a transition supply of your current drug.

- If your doctor writes your prescription for fewer days, you may refill the drug until you’ve received at least a 1-month supply, as described in your EOC.
You may be eligible for a temporary supply of prescription drugs if:
- You are a new Member and it’s during the first 90 days of your membership in the plan
- You have been in the plan for more than 90 days and reside in a long-term care (LTC) facility and need a supply right away
- You have a level of care change at any time during the plan year (for example: going into a long term care facility from a hospital, going home from a hospital stay, or going home from a long term care facility stay)

Within 14 days of the CMR, you'll receive a Medication Action Plan. It summarizes any clinical concerns and a Personal Medication List of your medication history. This can be helpful when meeting with your doctor or pharmacist. The results may also be sent to your doctor.
In addition to the CMR, Targeted Medication Reviews are completed at least quarterly.
