  • What is ePA?

Electronic prior authorization (ePA) is the automated process of exchanging patient health and medication information between
providers and health plans to gain authorized coverage of prescription medications. ePA expedites the determination process by letting providers initiate prior authorization (PA) requests prospectively in their e-prescribing workflow. Our integration with CoverMyMeds, a proven ePA software
provider delivering their solution to 700,000 providers, 62,000 pharmacies, and payers representing 88% of U.S. prescription volume, further streamlines the PA process by integrating ePA directly into NextGen® Office EHR. By seamlessly connecting providers, health plans, and pharmacists, practices can see significant improvements in time-to-therapy and prescription -abandonment rates. What’s more, there is no additional cost for the CoverMyMeds integration for NextGen Office users.


  • What is the ePA process?

Your practice is now able to send ePA requests for prescriptions to a payer directly from NextGen Office EHR instead of faxing or using a third party.


  • Why use the ePA process?

The ePA process minimizes the hassle associated with prescription prior authorizations. You and your staff can proactively fill out the ePA request form immediately after signing an order instead of waiting for communication from the pharmacy that a prior authorization is required.
