Gov. Wolf: Early Refill Availability for Prescriptions for Medicaid Recipients

Harrisburg, PA - Governor Tom Wolf announced today that the Department of Human Services (DHS) has directed the state's Medicaid Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) to let Medicaid recipients obtain early refills of all prescriptions at their pharmacy point-of-sale, which is especially important in light of 33 counties under stay-at-home orders. The MCOs are also being directed to be flexible with issuing prior authorizations for longer durations when medically necessary during the COVID-19 pandemic.
