Florida Medicaid’s Covered Services and HCBS Waivers

Prescribed Drug Services

Florida Medicaid reimburses providers of prescribed outpatient drugs:

  • Most prescription drugs used in outpatient settings and some injectable drugs (some included in the Preferred Drug List, others through prior authorization process.)
  • Some over-the-counter medications with a valid prescription.
This service is part of the minimum covered services for all Managed Medical Assistance plans serving Florida Medicaid enrollees.


All Florida Medicaid recipients may receive medically necessary prescribed drug services.
