Preferred Drug List

Starting July 5, 2023, CareSource will use Indiana Medicaid’s Statewide Uniform Preferred Drug List (SUPDL). The SUPDL and related criteria can be found on the IHCP Pharmacy Services page.

To get to the SUPDL:

  • Go to: https://inm-providerportal.optum.com/providerportal/faces/PreLogin.jsp
  • Click Preferred Products at the top of the page.
  • Choose Preferred Drug List from the Preferred Products dropdown menu to launch the SUPDL.
  • Prior authorization (PA) criteria links can be found with the associated Drug Class within this document.
  • Note: PA Forms are on the Forms page under Pharmacy Prior Authorizations.

The Preferred Drug List (PDL) is a list of the drugs that we like our providers to prescribe. There are two PDLs, depending on which plan you have. CareSource will still maintain and post a PDL. It will include SUPDL preferred products. It will also have preferred products in categories outside of the SUPDL. CareSource updates the PDL regularly. Visit the Drug Formulary page for more information. 

We cover all medically necessary Medicaid-covered drugs at many pharmacies. We also cover many commonly used Navigate over-the-counter (OTC) medications with a written prescription from your doctor.

If CareSource makes any changes to the PDL we will post the changes to our website. This may happen from time to time. 

Find My Prescriptions

Do you want to look up your medicine and find out if we cover it? It’s easy when you use our Find My Prescriptions tool. This tool will help you learn how to find your medicine and has products both on and off the SUPDL.

Quantity Limits

Some drugs have limits on how much you can get at one time. Quantity limits may be based on several factors such as:

  • The drug makers’ recommended dosing
  • Patient safety
  • The Indiana Medicaid Drug Utilization Review (DUR) Board
  • The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) recommendations
