Medicaid Managed Care Prescription Drug Coverage Works

Medicaid managed care prescription drug coverage works — getting Texans the medications, care, and coordination they need to get healthy and stay healthy.

Medicaid health plans have prescription drug programs in place that reduce opioid abuse and deaths, emergency room visits, and unnecessary hospitalization for kids with asthma. In fact, Medicaid managed care has reduced hospital stays for asthma and diabetes in Texas — chronic diseases that are typically expensive to treat — by more than 35% through better care and coordination of prescription drugs.

PREVENTS UNNECESSARY ER VISITS AND HOSPITALIZATION
REDUCES OPIOID ABUSE AND DEATHS

Medicaid Prescription Drug Coverage: Healthier. Happier. Smarter.

Medicaid managed care prescription drug coverage not only helps Texans get healthy and stay healthy — it’s also a more affordable and efficient prescription drug program.

Prior to prescription drugs being covered by Medicaid managed care plans, costs were out of control for Texas taxpayers. Drug costs had almost doubled from 2001 to 2011, growing more that 6.5% on average a year. As a result of Medicaid Managed Care, Texas Medicaid prescription drug cost growth dropped by half and is now 3 times better than the national average.
