In brief: Price
It is a very expensive medication! insurance want to make sure it is indeed indicated before paying such a pricey medication.

In brief: Usually Insurance
Assuming you are ready to be treated with peg interferon from your doctor, the prescription usually gets submitted to the pharmacy and from there the "downtime" usually depends on your insurance plan and approval.
Ask your nurse or physician assistant about the details.
