Preferred Drug List

The KanCare Preferred Drug List (PDL) is the list of covered drugs. The Kansas Medical Assistance Program (KMAP) works with providers and pharmacists to ensure that medications used to treat a variety of conditions and diseases are covered. The PDL applies to drugs you receive at retail pharmacies. It also applies to mail-order pharmacies. The KanCare PDL is continually evaluated by the Kansas Preferred Drug List Advisory Committee, composed of practicing physicians and pharmacists, to promote the appropriate and cost-effective use of medications.

Only drugs that are part of the listed therapeutic classes are affected by the Preferred Drug List (PDL). Therapeutic classes not listed are not part of the PDL and will continue to be covered as they always have for the Kansas Medical Assistance Pharmacy Program.
