Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Healthcare Solutions (Anthem) has a list of drugs you can choose from. It is called a Preferred Drug List (PDL). It includes all medicines covered by Medicaid.

You may need to get approval from us for certain drugs. This is known as prior authorization (PA). Your request should include why a specific drug is needed and how much is needed. You must get approval from us before a prescription can be filled. When there is a generic drug available, it will be covered. Requests for brand name drugs when generics are available will need a PA.
