7/12

Prescriptions are one of Medicaid's most important benefits. While prescription coverage is considered an optional benefit, all states provide a prescription program of one form or another.

 

The two important tasks for you are to:

o       Find a pharmacy that participates in Medicaid. Finding a participating pharmacist is discussed above. o       Learn about your own state's prescription program. While it is not always easy to get details of the coverage under Medicaid, there are several avenues through which you might gain information:

        Ask your eligibility worker. While he or she may not know the details of the drug plan, there is often literature available that will provide some information.

        Ask the pharmacist about the plan.

        Check your state's Medicaid web site. While this is something of a long shot, your state may have added this description by the time you need the information.
