Pharmacy program

Optum is Pinnacol's contracted provider of pharmacy benefits for injured workers. The program offers prescription discounts and convenient fulfillment, with more than 90 percent of Colorado pharmacies participating. If an injured worker asks you about the PMSI program, please ask them to call their Pinnacol Assurance claims representative.

Tools for medical providers

  • Easy-to-use pharmacy locator
  • If you are prescribing to an injured worker through Optum for the first time, you will need to provide a first-fill form to the worker. Access the form by logging in to the Provider Portal.

Shortly after a claim is filed, we mail the injured worker an information card on how to use the program. If patients ask you further questions about Optum, please refer them to their Pinnacol claims representative for assistance.
