B.
Updates to the Prior Authorization Program
Effective November 1, 2009, Adcirca™ (tadalafil) was added to Highmark’s Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension policy for Medicare Advantage and BlueRxSM members. When a benefit, tadalafil may be approved when all of the following criteria are met: 1. A diagnosis of pulmonary hypertension is substantiated by results from Doppler
echocardiography and/or direct measurement of pulmonary arterial pressure. Pulmonary arterial
hypertension is defined as a mean pulmonary arterial pressure of > or = 25 mmHg, with a pulmonary
capillary wedge pressure of < 15 mmHg AND
2. Tadalafil is to be prescribed under the supervision of a cardiologist or pulmonologist AND
3. Tadalafil is to be used for the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension (WHO Group I) to
increase exercise ability AND
4. Tadalafil may be used alone or in combination with calcium channel blockers, angiotensin
converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, diuretics, digoxin, and anticoagulants, but will not be covered
when used concomitantly with bosentan (Tracleer™), ambrisentan (Letairis™), sildenafil (Revatio™),
epoprostenol sodium (Flolan®), treprostinil sodium (Remodulin™, Tyvaso™), or iloprost (Ventavis®),
due to the lack of clinical data to support combination therapy with these agents.
Adcirca™ (tadalafil) (continued) As there is no established criterion or algorithm for the transitioning of patients from one PAH drug
product to another (e.g., sildenafil to bosentan), the use of two agents concomitantly may be authorized
for a period of up to one month to accommodate potential overlapping titration schedules when changing
therapy from one drug product to another. As stated in #4 above, coverage will not be provided for the
use of two agents (bosentan, ambrisentan, sildenafil, epoprostenol, iloprost, treprostinil) as maintenance
combination therapy for PAH.
Use of tadalafil for disease states outside of its FDA-approved indications will be denied based on the
lack of clinical data to support its effectiveness and safety in other conditions.

Duration of authorization:
If approved, authorization may be granted for a period of up to one year.
2.
Onsolis™ (fentanyl buccal soluble film) Effective November 1, 2009, Onsolis™ (fentanyl buccal soluble film) was added to Highmark’s Oral Transmucosal Fentanyl Citrate Policy for Medicare Advantage and BlueRxSM members. When a benefit, oral transmucosal fentanyl citrate may be approved when the following criteria are met: For the management of breakthrough cancer pain in patients who are currently receiving and are tolerant to long-acting opioid therapy. Upon approval, coverage will be limited to 120 units total (Fentora or Actiq or Onsolis) per 25 days. If more units are required on a daily basis for the management of breakthrough cancer pain, an increase in the around-the-clock opioid dose for persistent pain should be considered.
Oral transmucosal fentanyl citrate should not be used for acute pain conditions, chronic pain conditions
which are not related to cancer, or in situations involving chronic pain in which the patient is not
receiving maintenance doses of long-acting opioid analgesics.
Duration of Authorization: If approved, authorization may be granted for a period of up to one year.

C.
Additions to Highmark’s Pharmaceutical Management Procedures
Additions to the Specialty Tier Copay Option Effective November 1, 2009, Firmagon® (degarelix) was added to the specialty tier copay program for
Medicare Advantage and BlueRxSM members.
Effective November 1, 2009, Adcirca™ (tadalafil) and Onsolis™ (fentanyl buccal soluble film) were added to
the specialty tier copay program with prior authorization criteria for Medicare Advantage and BlueRxSM
members.

D.

Specialty Drug Tier Program
Specialty drugs are very high-cost and unique drugs as defined by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. These drugs may incur a coinsurance based on their negotiated price. Because of this, the cost may vary slightly due to pricing changes in the drug. Drugs in the specialty tier apply to Highmark Medicare Advantage and BlueRx members. Please refer to the following list for products included in the Specialty Drug Tier program. Specialty Drug Tier Program (continued)
