Pharmacy and Prescription Drugs

You get prescription drugs at no cost to you.  We cover your medically necessary medicines when filled at a Molina network pharmacy. We also cover some over-the-counter (OTC) medicines with a prescription from your provider.

Molina is required to use the New Mexico Medicaid state-prescribed list of covered drugs called Preferred Drug List (PDL).  A team of doctors and pharmacists update this regularly. They use recommendations from national organizations and experts to make decisions on preferred and non-preferred drugs. They want to make sure the drug on the list is safe and helpful for you, and that it is cost-effective for the Turquoise Care  program.

Molina Healthcare does not cover all medications. The PDL gives you facts about a drug and lists any restrictions. The PDL also includes both generic and brand-name drugs. Generic drugs are drugs that have the same dosage, safety, strength and intended use as a brand-name drug. They usually cost less than brand-name drugs.

Certain drugs on the PDL, and those not on our PDL, require a Prior Authorization (PA). For those drugs that require PA, your provider will need to send us a Prior Authorization Request. Prior Authorization requests for covered services will be reviewed and approved if medically necessary to treat your condition.

To fill your prescriptions, you must use a Molina network pharmacy. Be sure to take your member ID card with you and remember to fill your prescriptions before you travel out of state.
