HFS is pleased to announce that a drug search engine has been incorporated into
its website that will allow providers to search for drugs by both generic and brand
names to immediately determine if the drug requires prior authorization (PA). This
web page also contains links to information regarding the PA process, PA forms and
PA requirements so that prescribing for HFS clients can be streamlined. The web
address is: http://ilpriorauth.com/.

at Chicago (UIC) College of Pharmacy. The Department would like to sincerely thank
UIC for the hard work that they invested in the search engine.
