Prescription Drugs

Prescription drugs

Prescription medications are covered when:

  • They are ordered by your provider or another doctor treating you or your child and the drug is listed on the UT Medicaid 2019 Drug List and UT Chip 2019 Drug List.
    • The Drug List (Formulary) is Molina Healthcare’s list of approved drugs that doctors can order for you.
  • They are ordered or given while you are in an emergency room or hospital.
  • They are given while you are in a rest home, nursing home or convalescent hospital and they are ordered by a plan doctor for a covered service and you got them through a pharmacy that is in the Molina Pharmacy Network.
  • They are prescribed by a family planning doctor or other provider whose services do not require an approval.

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 (formulation) as the brand name drug.

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