Preferred Drug List
for CCHP Members
The PDL is only a listing of preferred medications; if your provider has clinical reasons to choose a second line agent, they will need to complete a prior authorization form and contact the health plan. For our Medi-Cal members all medications on our PDL are available with a $0 co-payment. For our other members please refer to your "Evidence of Coverage" (EOC) for information about co-pays and exclusions to coverage for your specific situation. Most over-the-counter (OTC) medication is not covered, except where specified, and medical supplies and devices are not included in the PDL.
