Florida Pharmacy Resources

Many drugs are covered under the Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Benefit, however, depending on what the drug is used for and how it is administered, some drugs can be covered under the Medicare Part B Medical Benefit.

The Social Security Act designated certain drugs as exclusions from Medicare Part D coverage. Excluded drugs are not found on Wellcare’s drug formulary and members who choose to obtain them may need to pay out of pocket. If medically necessary, a coverage determination request may be submitted with the provider’s supporting statement, however this does not guarantee coverage.

Florida Medicare

Certain prescribed medications on Wellcare’s drug formulary may require prior authorization (PA) based on the member’s age. The table below lists potential alternatives that do not require a PA.
