Medicaid cards cover prescriptions for Medicaid approved medications, with a few exceptions. A Family Planning Services card ONLY covers prescriptions related to Family Planning, such as birth control. 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 www.Medicare.gov. 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.
If you do not have a Medicaid card and are in emergent need of medicine, you can come into the agency for a prescription referral from Share and Care. (Funds are limited; therefore, you can only receive this help once a year with a maximum benefit of $50). Remember to bring either your prescription bottle or paper with you.
