WellCare of North Carolina Will Pay for the Drugs that Medicaid Requires You to Have.

It is also important to know that WellCare of North Carolina uses a Preferred Drug List (PDL).

  • The PDL is a list of drugs that we prefer your doctor use
  • The drugs on the PDL are organized by brand and generic name
  • Quantity, gender and age limits are also provided 
  • Some drugs require step therapy - the use of other drugs first before they will be approved. These are noted with an "ST" (Step Therapy)
  • Some of these drugs require a review and are noted with a "PA" (Prior Authorization).

Find a drug by searching our online tool or viewing/printing a PDL
