The Jan. 2021 Medicaid Preferred Drug List is available. This update includes changes approved at the July and Oct. 2020 Drug Utilization Review Board meetings. The document includes formulary and prior authorization information, notations for drugs requiring clinical prior authorization, the review schedule, and appendices for cough and cold products, iron oral agents, and prenatal vitamins products.

These changes will appear in the Epocrates drug information system. Epocrates does not mirror the HHSC designations differentiated by dosage form. In these situations, Epocrates accompanies the designation with an explanatory message.
