First fill card

Injured employees should immediately report their injury to their employer, and then see an authorized medical provider. Health care providers have access to Optum's network of pharmacies, allowing providers to authorize only the first fill of the prescription immediately, without waiting for approval.

First fill cards allow employees to fill initial prescriptions with no out-of-pocket expenses the first week after their injury. Injured employees can present a first fill card to any participating pharmacy for easy processing.

Contact the Fund at or 800.482.7276, x2845 for a First Fill card to give to your injured employees.
