Preferred Drug List
We have a list of commonly prescribed drugs your doctor can choose from. It’s called a Preferred Drug List (PDL). Prescription and certain over-the-counter medicines are covered. Your doctor may need to get preapproval for some drugs to be filled. Your request should include why the drug is needed and how much is needed. Requests for brand-name drugs when generics are available also need preapproval.
Search for brand-name and generic drugs that are on your medication list.
Search for your drug by:
- Typing the name (at least first three letters) of the drug in the search box
- Using the A-Z list to search by the first letter of your drug
- Clicking on therapeutic class of the drug
If you need a drug that isn’t listed on our formulary, you or someone you choose to act for you can request a formulary exception. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have your prescriptions filled easily
Your doctor can call in the prescription to the pharmacy. Or, you can bring the prescription from your doctor to a pharmacy in your plan. You’ll need to show the pharmacy your Amerigroup ID card and your Medicaid or PeachCare for Kids® ID card to get your prescription. Try to use the same pharmacy each time so your pharmacist will know about problems that may occur when you’re taking more than one prescription. If you use another pharmacy, tell the pharmacist about any medicines you’re taking.

What pharmacies work with Amerigroup?
For a list of pharmacies that work with your plan, look in your provider directory. Or call Pharmacy Member Services at 1-833-205-6006 (TTY 711) or ask your local pharmacy for help.
Are over-the-counter (OTC) products covered? Do I need a prescription?
We cover many OTC products, like:
- Pain relievers
- Some vitamins
All OTC products need a written prescription from your doctor and can be filled at any pharmacy in your plan.
How does my doctor request preapproval?
Your doctor can ask for preapproval on medicines by calling the Pharmacy department at 1-800-454-3730.
What if a copay is needed and I can’t pay it?
If you don’t have the copay for your medicine, your pharmacy should still give you the medicine. If the pharmacy lets you take the medicine without paying the copay, you’ll have to pay it at a later time.
What happens if my medicines are lost or stolen?
If your medicines are lost or stolen, call your doctor to approve the pharmacy to refill your prescription early. The pharmacy may have to call us for preapproval. Replacement of lost or stolen medicines will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
What if I paid out of pocket for a medicine and want to be paid back?
If you paid for a medicine, ask your provider for a refund. Your provider will send us a claim.
