Amerigroup Community Care now offers new feminine hygiene benefits for Georgia members

Effective August 1, 2021, Amerigroup will cover select menstrual products (restrictions apply). Female members may be eligible to receive pad and tampon benefits. Quantity limits include one product per 30 days or one product per 45 days, depending on the package size.

A prescription is required. These products must be obtained as over the counter (OTC) products at the pharmacy counter. No prior authorization overrides will be allowed.

Family Planning and Inter-Pregnancy Care members are excluded.
Have questions? We’re here to help. Please call Pharmacy Member Services at 833-205-6006 (TTY 711).

Clinical practice guidelines are the standards our doctors use to treat different kinds of health conditions. Doctors use these clinical practice guidelines to help them decide what care is best for your illness or condition. If you’d like a copy of our clinical practice guidelines, call Member Services at 1-800-600-4441 (TTY 711).

The Amerigroup medical director and our participating providers assess new medical advances (or changes to existing technology) in:

  • Medical procedures
  • Behavioral health procedures
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Medical devices

They also look at scientific literature and whether these new medical advances and treatments:

  • Are considered safe and effective by the government
  • Give equal or better outcomes than the covered treatment or therapy that exists now

They do this to decide if these advances are suited as covered benefits.
