HCA launches first phase of single preferred drug list for Apple Health

January 3, 2018

In 2018, HCA will implement a new approach for prescription medications for Apple Health (Medicaid) clients. It is called a single preferred drug list (PDL). A single PDL will provide the same set of medications to Apple Health clients, whether they are in a managed care plan or the Apple Health fee-for-service program. On January 1, the first phase of implementation began when 13 drug classes moved to the single PDL. Read more from the HCA. (Chelene Whiteaker)
