Welcome to ASEBP!

New Process for Requesting Approval for Certain Medications

On September 1, 2015, ASEBP introduced a new process for requesting approval for certain specialty drugs used to treat five chronic health conditions. This new process—the enhanced special authorization process—will help us manage the increasing cost of specialty drugs, while balancing the health of covered members and the support we offer. The enhanced process covers treatments for these five health conditions:

  • Chronic hepatitis C
  • Crohn’s disease/colitis
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Severe psoriasis

Details of the enhanced special authorization process and the steps you need to follow to request approval for treatments for one of these five health conditions can be found in the Rx Benefits section of our website.

Extended Health Care Plan Changes

On September 1, 2015, we made two changes to our Extended Health Care plan:

  • Some preventative vaccines are now eligible for coverage. You can find a list of eligible vaccines here. This change will assist covered members in continuing to take a proactive approach to their health and well-being.

  • Non-life-sustaining over-the-counter medications are no longer eligible for coverage. This was done to comply with Canada Revenue Agency guidelines and has no bearing on the validity of these medications as treatments.

To determine which vaccines and medications are covered by your ASEBP Extended Health Care benefits, use the Drug Inquiry Tool available under the Coverage tab on My ASEBP.

My ASEBP's New Drug Inquiry Tool

ASEBP is excited to announce the launch of our new drug inquiry tool that allows you to search any prescription drug you are currently taking or that you and your doctor may be considering. The tool will tell you if the drug is covered under your ASEBP Extended Health Care plan and will provide information about the drug’s common uses, along with other information specific to your ASEBP plan.

Simply log into My ASEBP, go to the "Coverage" tab and then click “Drug Inquiry” to start exploring the new tool, available exclusively to ASEBP covered members! You can read more about the tool in this Frequently Asked Questions document.
