Medications that need prior authorization are those which are not on your insurance's formulary but may be covered if your doctor sends documentation to your insurance company that it is medically necessary. There is no list of "prior authorization medications" that is applicable to everyone.

You need never explain your quit to your boss, and your boss need never explain your discharge to you ... to a state or fed agency, perhaps, but not to you.
