CareSource will pay for your prescription drugs and some prescription medical supplies at the pharmacy. Some examples are diabetic supplies, inhaler spacers, peak flow meters, syringes, needles, alcohol wipes and condoms. You will need to get your prescription drugs at a pharmacy that takes CareSource.
Be sure to bring your CareSource ID card with your prescription to the pharmacy. Your ID card will let pharmacies know that CareSource pays for your medicines.
Many Georgia Medicaid and PeachCare for Kids® members pay a small part of their health care costs, called a copayment. Learn more about pharmacy copays by clicking here.
