Preferred Drug List

The LDH Single PDL is a list of medicine Louisiana Medicaid recipients can use if prescribed. A Pharmacy and Therapeutics (P&T) Committee recommends medicine to include on or remove from the PDL. Medicine on the PDL is identified as preferred or nonpreferred and includes information about prior authorization requirements.
