Medicaid cards cover prescriptions for Medicaid approved medications, with a few exceptions. A QMB card does not cover any medications. If you have Medicare Part D, Medicaid will only cover prescriptions NOT covered by Medicare. Even if you have a co-pay for a Medicare covered prescription, Medicaid will not cover the balance of the cost. Medicare Part D is issued through Social Security. For details on Medicare Part D, see If there is a medication that you need and discover that it is not Medicaid approved, please contact your physician to see if he/she can prescribe a Medicaid covered medication or to see if he/she can submit information to Columbus to have the medication approved.
