The Food and Drug Administration announced a drug shortage for Tacrolimus, part of the in the Oral Immunosuppressives drug class. In response FirstCare has temporarily removed the non-preferred status from the generic formulations of the NDCs below effective April 17. These changes will allow providers to prescribe for these drugs without requiring a PDL prior authorization and allow continued access to necessary medication for clients. This is a temporary change until the preferred products are sufficiently available in the market. FirstCare will announce any further PDL status changes of these NDCs.
