Preferred Drug List (PDL)

The PDL is a clinical guide of prescription drug products selected by WellCare's Pharmaceutical and Therapeutics (P&T) Committee based on a drug's efficacy, safety, side effects, pharmacokinetics, clinical literature and cost-effectiveness. 

Most medications are covered without prior authorization. However, the PDL denotes a range of coverage limitations to promote appropriate use of utilization management tools to particular drugs, when applicable.
