Pharmacy Information


Pharmacy information for providers including contact information and formulary details can be found below. Pharmacy benefits are provided through CarelonRx.

Medicaid Preferred Drug List (Formulary)

Please refer to the Amerigroup Community Care Preferred Drug List (PDL) when prescribing for our members. The formulary contains preferred and non-preferred drugs listed by brand or generic name.  Non-preferred drugs are subject to prior authorization. Some drugs on the PDL may have additional requirements or limitations of coverage that will require you to contact our Pharmacy PA Center for authorization.

Drugs not listed in the formulary are considered to be non-formulary until they are reviewed for formulary placement through the P&T process.  These new drugs may be available through prior authorization or medical necessity review.  Providers may request the addition of a product to the formulary by submitting their personal request along with any supporting information using this link: Drug List Addition Request (carelonrx.com)

The PDL is reviewed and updated quarterly.  The PDL can be accessed from the links below.

 

Prior Authorization Requests

Some drugs, drug combinations, and drug doses require prior authorization (PA). To submit electronic prior authorization (ePA) requests, use CoverMyMeds . Creating an account is free.

While ePA helps streamline the PA process, you may also initiate a new PA request by calling or faxing a completed Pharmacy Prior Authorization form to Amerigroup. Please note the following contact numbers for prior authorization requests and PA form below:
