First Fill program
The First Fill program provides one-time prescription processing before the Workers’ Compensation (WC) claim is established. This prevents an out-of-pocket prescription expense for the injured worker. This program allows the injured employee to fill a prescriptions written by their treating physician for medications related to their reported workers compensation injury. They present the temporary prescription card at the pharmacy at the time the prescription is filled. This is only temporary prescription card, they may receive a permanent drug card in the future based on the merits of the claim.
