Dispensing Limits Apply

Horizon BCBSNJ monitors claims for certain drugs to ensure that they are prescribed and dispensed within the proper safety standards for dosage and/or the length of time you use the drug. These standards are established from a number of sources, such as Food and Drug Administration product labeling, medical literature, dispensing patterns and generally accepted standards of medical practice. If your specialty medication prescription requires you to exceed the dispensing limit, you will be notified. You or your doctor can request an exception.
