Drug Search Engine

HFS is pleased to announce that a drug search engine has been incorporated into its website that will allow providers to search for drugs by both generic and brand names to immediately determine if the drug requires prior authorization (PA). This web page also contains links to information regarding the PA process, PA forms and PA requirements so that prescribing for HFS clients can be streamlined. The web address is: http://www.hfs.illinois.gov/pharmacy/. Click on "Search for Prior Approval Status by Drug" on the left side of the page.

This search engine was developed and is maintained by the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) College of Pharmacy. The Department would like to sincerely thank UIC for the hard work that they invested in the search engine.
