2022 Tufts Health Unify Part B Step Therapy Policy

Beginning 1/1/2022 step therapy will be required for some Medicare Part B prescription drugs.

These are drugs that usually aren’t self-administered. They are injected or infused while you are getting physician, hospital outpatient, or ambulatory surgical center services.

What is Step Therapy?
