CareSource PASSE pays for all medically necessary, CMS participating, Medicaid-covered FDA-approved products on the Preferred Drug List (PDL) at many pharmacies. These are drugs we prefer your provider to prescribe. The PDL can change. Check the PDL when you need to fill or refill a drug.

Do you have questions about your medications? Talk to a CareSource PASSE pharmacist! They can look over your medications with you and answer questions. You do not need an appointment! Call 1-833-230-2073 to speak with a pharmacist today. We are open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. CT.

Prior Authorization

CareSource PASSE may ask your provider why you need a certain type or dose of medicine. Prior authorization may be needed if:

  • There is a generic or over the counter (OTC) drug.
  • The drug can be misused or abused.
  • There are other drugs that must be tried first.

Some drugs have limits on how much can be given at once. Some drugs are never covered, like drugs for weight loss. If we do not approve a drug, we will tell you how to ask for an appeal of our decision and your right to a state fair hearing.
