Medicaid Pharmacy Benefits

When you need drugs or over-the-counter items, your doctor will write you a prescription.  Your doctor will then contact your pharmacy or you can take the prescription to your pharmacy to receive your medication(s).  You must use a pharmacy that accepts Indiana Medicaid to receive your prescription.  You can use a mail order pharmacy or go to a participating pharmacy.  Many large chain pharmacies participate in Medicaid including:

  • CVS
  • K-Mart
  • Kroger
  • Marsh
  • Rite Aid
  • Target Pharmacy
  • Meijer Pharmacy
  • Walgreens Pharmacy
  • Wal-Mart Pharmacy

Tip:  Always remember to present your Hoosier Health Card to your pharmacy provider.

Tip:  Do not wait until you are out of medicine to request a refill.  Please call your doctor or pharmacy a few days prior to being out of your medication.

You may have a co-pay for your medications, visit the Drug Co-Pay page to learn more.  If you have questions about which medications are covered please look under Covered Medications.
