Prescriptions and Pharmacies

Our health plan formularies are frequently updated to keep pace with new clinical data and evolving drug classes. Pharmacies will dispense a generic medication when available. Our goal is to maintain a clinically sound, broad formulary that will help drive generic utilization which lowers pharmacy costs for your patients. We distribute revised formularies to our members on an annual basis and will inform members and providers when changes are made. For the latest versions of our plan formularies, please visit:

Drug Prior Authorizations

Certain drugs require prior authorization. This means that a member or their provider will need to get approval from Martin's Point Health Care before the prescription is filled. Step therapy is also used to provide safe, clinically effective and cost-effective medication in drug categories that have multiple agents with comparable therapeutic efficacy. This means that these medications are only covered if the member has already tried certain medications that did not work

Generations Advantage Determinations, Grievances and Appeals

Important Notice! Providers who prescribe drugs for Medicare or Medicare Advantage patients must be enrolled in (or validly opted-out of) Medicare. Because of a new Medicare requirement, it is crucial for your patients’ health that you enroll in Medicare (or validly opt out, if appropriate). Please do so as soon as possible. A delay on your part could result in your Medicare patients not being able to obtain drugs you prescribe for them. Click here to learn how to enroll or opt-out. (PDF)

Electronic Prescriptions

Martin’s Point pharmacies accept electronic prescriptions. Search for us under the following names from within your Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system:

• “Martins Pt. Mail Order Pharmacy Maine” (for US Family Health Plan members ONLY)
• “Martins Pt. Portland Clinic Maine Pharmacy”
• “Martins Pt. Portsmouth Clinic New Hampshire Pharmacy”

If you are unable to find the Martin’s Point pharmacy names as listed above, please contact your EMR system administrator and request a download of the latest list of e-prescribing pharmacies from Surescripts.®

The State of Maine allows electronic prescriptions for controlled substances. EMR software companies must take additional security and technology steps to comply with the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Interim Final Rule. Please confirm with your software vendor that they are certified by the DEA before transmitting prescriptions for controlled substances.

New York state providers, please be sure to select “Martins Pt. Mail Order Pharmacy Maine” within your EMR system rather than our Portland, ME or Portsmouth, NH clinic pharmacies when sending prescriptions for US Family Health plan members. This will prevent delays in the delivery of their medication.
