Getting My Medicine
Generic drugs must be used when available. There are drugs that may have a limit on how much you can get at one time and its strength. Sometimes you have to try other medications first before we approve a drug. This is called Step-Therapy.
Your doctor knows about:

Your doctor will get prior approval for the drugs that need it. Your doctor may want to give you a drug that is not on the PDL. Your doctor will ask an approval through Florida Community Care’s Pharmacy Department. We will reply to your doctor in (24) hours. If it is the weekend, we will reply the next working day. If the request is approved, we will tell your doctor. If a request is denied, a letter will be mailed. The letter will tell you the reason for the denial. The letter will let you know how to appeal.
You may be taking a drug that is no longer on our PDL. Your doctor can ask us to keep paying for this drug by requesting a prior approval. The drug must be safe and help you with your medical problem.

Specialty Pharmacy Information:
FCC covers a full range of specialty prescription medications. We have a list of drugs that we cover. This list is called the AHCA PDL. You can find this list here. You may also call Enrollee Services. 1-833-FCC-PLAN or 711 for TDD/TTY.
We cover brand name and generic drugs. Generic drugs have the same ingredients as brand name drugs, but they are often cheaper than brand name drugs. They work the same. Sometimes, we may need to approve using a brand name drug before your prescription is filled. You can fill your first prescription at any network pharmacy that is in our provider network. The pharmacy will arrange to have refills delivered to your place of residence or a CVS pharmacy that you specify. Make sure to bring your Plan ID card with you to the pharmacy.
The list of covered drugs may change from time to time, but we will let you know if anything changes
