About prescription drugs

  • This comprehensive list includes drugs covered by Medical Assistance (Medicaid) and over-the-counter drugs.

    To get a covered drug:

    • Have your health care provider write a prescription for it
    • Take the prescription to a pharmacy in the Medica network

    The pharmacist will fill your prescription with a generic version of the drug if one is available. If there's no generic version, the pharmacist will give you a name-brand version.

  • Specialty drugs are used to treat certain complex or chronic health problems. They tend to be very expensive and may need special handling and monitoring.

    If you’re prescribed a specialty drug, your prescriber will need to send the prescription for it to our preferred specialty pharmacy, Accredo Specialty Pharmacy.*

    How to fill a new specialty drug prescription

    1. Check the List of Covered Drugs (Formulary), to see if your medication is a specialty drug.
    2. Fill your prescription through Accredo Specialty Pharmacy.*
      • First time filling a prescription: Call Accredo to set up an account. Have your Medica identification (ID) card ready when you call.
      • Refilling an active prescription: Create an account on the Accredo Patient Portal to manage refills.

    * There are a small number of drugs not available through Accredo Specialty Pharmacy. These drugs may be considered limited distribution by the manufacturer. This means you need to get them through a different specialty pharmacy.

    Your provider typically knows where to send prescriptions for limited distribution drugs, but if you have any questions, contact Accredo Specialty Pharmacy.

    If your specialty drug is available through Accredo Specialty Pharmacy and you fill it at a different specialty pharmacy, your drug won't be covered and you'll be responsible for the entire cost.

  • Some drugs need approval or prior authorization before you get your prescription filled. Your healthcare provider can request prior authorization approval from Medica. You must get approval from Medica before you can fill your prescription for these drugs or Medica may not cover the cost.

    Prior Authorization

    It's important for your health care provider to fill the form out as completely as possible and list which medications you have tried and failed. Your provider should include the dosages that you used and the reason why the drugs didn't work (e.g. side effects or effectiveness).

American Indians can continue to use tribal and Indian Health Services (IHS) clinics. We will not require prior approval or impose any conditions for you to get services at these clinics. For elders age 65 years and older this includes Elderly Waiver (EW) services accessed through the tribe. If a doctor or other provider in a tribal or IHS clinic refers you to a provider in our network, we will not require you to see your primary care provider prior to the referral.
