Preferred Drug List Changes

Effective July 1, 2024, the South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (SCDHHS) will implement a single state-directed preferred drug list (PDL) for all participating managed care organizations (MCOs) and the fee-for-service (FFS) Medicaid program.

What is the Pharmacy Program?

The pharmacy program provides comprehensive prescription drug coverage for recipients enrolled in FFS Medicaid and the state's five MCOs. This program allows unlimited monthly prescriptions for Medicaid members and copay exemptions for certain drug classes.
