Mail Order Prescriptions

Qualifying Medicaid fee-for-service clients may receive their outpatient maintenance medications from mail order pharmacies.

In order to qualify, a Medicaid client must have:

  1. A physical hardship that prohibits him or her from obtaining their maintenance medications from a local pharmacy; or
  2. Third-party insurance that requires the use of a mail order pharmacy to obtain their maintenance medications.

A client, or the client's physician, must complete and submit an enrollment form to the Department that attests the client meets one of the qualifying criteria.

Local pharmacies, which are not mail order pharmacies, may continue to occasionally mail any type of outpatient medication to any fee-for-service Medicaid clients without the need for clients to enroll for the mail order pharmacy benefit.
