Prescription Drugs

Prescription drugs
​​What's covered

Prescription medications are covered when:

As an additional benefit, Molina Healthcare covers a 30-day supply of prescription drugs mailed to your home. Molina Healthcare also covers the over-the-counter drugs on our PDL at no cost to you. You will need a prescription from your provider for the over-the-counter drug to be covered by Molina Healthcare.

Note: Certain medications need prior approval by Molina Healthcare. Your provider needs to send Molina Healthcare a request and get prior authorization before these drugs will be covered.

Generic medications

Generic drugs have the same ingredients as brand name drugs. To be FDA (government) approved, the generic drug must have the same active ingredient, strength and dosage as the brand name drug.

  • If your provider orders a brand name drug and there is a generic available, Molina Healthcare will cover the generic medication. If your provider says you must have the brand name drug instead of the generic, he/she must submit a prior authorization request to Molina Healthcare’s Pharmacy Department.
