This website is designed to provide easy access for members and providers looking for information on the drugs and supplies covered by different Medicaid and Family Health Plus health care plans. While pharmacy benefits and participating pharmacies vary among health plans, all plans maintain their own web sites and customer service call centers.
To use this website, you should first check your health plan identification card and match it to the one presented on this website. By clicking on the appropriate identification card/logo you will be provided with contact numbers and links to your health plan's website including links to prior authorization (PA) forms and drug/drug category look-up options. If you do not have your health plan identification card or do not know what health plan you are enrolled in, call the Medicaid Helpline at 1-800-541-2831 from 8am through 8pm, Monday through Friday and from 9am to 1pm on Saturday.
Each managed care plan has its own list of covered drugs (called a formulary). If you would like to find out if a drug/drug category is covered, perform a drug look-up search.
