Louisiana Medicaid: Prescription coverage

Humana Healthy Horizons in Louisiana members are eligible for pharmacy benefits. Magellan Medicaid Administration Pharmacy Benefits Management Program provides pharmacy benefits for Louisiana Medicaid recipients. This coverage includes prescription medications and certain over-the-counter medications with a written order from a Humana Healthy Horizons provider. The pharmacy program does not cover all medications. Some medications may require prior authorization and some may have limitations. Other medically necessary pharmacy services are covered as well.

Preferred Drug List

The Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) Single Preferred Drug List (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.
