Correction: No TAR Required for Copper IUDs

June 15, 2018

In a previous Medi-Cal Update published May 31, 2018, the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) introduced a new manual section titled Physician Administered Drugs in the Part 2 Medi-Cal Pharmacy provider manual. The new section states in error that a Treatment Authorization Request (TAR) is always required for copper intrauterine devices (IUDs).

No TAR is required for copper IUDs. This information will be corrected in the Physician Administered Drugs section in a future Medi-Cal Update.
