Treatment after Normal Business Hours
If treatment is required after hours, the emergency room physician will administer the necessary medication. However, if this is not possible and there are immediate pharmaceutical needs, the supervisor or employee should visit the Montgomery County Self-Insurance Program website www.mcsip.org for the nearest pharmacist.
In the sidebar menu, there is a link for CorVel CorCareRX, MCI’s team partner managing Workers’ Compensation Drug Plans.
To assist the employee, the supervisor should print a First Fill Card (temporary pharmacy card). Providing a First Fill Card eliminates the need for out-of-pocket expenses thus making the process convenient for the employee.
If preferred, there is the option to call CorCareRX’s toll-free 800.563.8438 for assistance locating a participating pharmacist.

If testing is performed by an area hospital, the source will need to give permission for the results to be released to TruHealth. To ensure proper billing, coordination with the CorVel Claims Professional is required.
