Arkansas Total Care provides appropriate, high-quality, and cost-effective drug therapy to our members.  Arkansas Total Care covers prescription drugs and some over-the-counter (OTC) medicines approved by providers. The pharmacy program does not cover all medicines. Some medicines need Prior Authorization (PA), and some may have limitations.

  • Arkansas Medicaid Preferred Drug List - The Preferred Drug List (PDL) (PDF) is the list of drugs covered by Arkansas Total Care. Arkansas Total Care works with providers and pharmacists to ensure that prescription medicines are covered under the pharmacy benefit. These medicines are for a variety of conditions and diseases. The PDL applies to drugs you get at retail pharmacies. Please direct all overrides to the Pharmacy Help Desk: 1-833-587-2011 (Rx BIN: 004336).
