NOTE: The majority of commercial member enrollment files for a Jan. 1 effective date have been processed. There are some, however, that are still in process as employers finalize their year-end enrollment. It is possible that providers may be unable to verify eligibility for these members. If this occurs, please resubmit these eligibility requests a week or two later. Medica apologizes for any delay.

Specialty Drug Program

Medica relies on preferred vendors to manage specialty drugs for members. Fairview Specialty Pharmacy is our preferred Specialty Drug Program vendor. If a medication is not available at the Fairview Specialty Pharmacy, refer to the Specialty Drug List for additional locations.
