Pharmacy

Get your medication delivered to you
You don't have to leave your house to get your medication. You can get your medication delivered to your home. Or, if you prefer, the medication can be delivered to your doctor's office. Get started today! Click on the "Mail-order prescriptions" menu below for details.

The pharmacies in our Medicaid network are changing as of February 3. You must use a pharmacy that’s in our network. Mercy Care network pharmacies include:

  • Any CVS Pharmacy® (including those inside Target® stores), Walmart, Safeway, Fry’s, Albertson’s and Sam’s Club
  • Most local neighborhood pharmacies
  • Many hospital pharmacies

This change may not affect you right now. Just remember it’s best to always get your medicine at a network pharmacy. If you are filling prescriptions at a pharmacy that will no longer be in the network, you will soon get a letter about how to:

  • Find a new network pharmacy
  • Transfer (move) your current prescriptions to the new network pharmacy you choose

You can visit https://www.mercycareaz.org/find-a-provider for a list of network pharmacies. Please be aware that Walgreens pharmacies will still show in the directory until February 2. However you should transfer (move) your current prescriptions to a new network pharmacy other than Walgreens.

You can also contact Mercy Care Member Services for assistance in locating a network pharmacy near you.

Save time with mail-order prescription drugs Do you take medications on a regular basis for an ongoing condition, like high blood pressure or arthritis? Then you may be able to join Mercy Care’s mail-order maintenance prescription drug program. This service delivers your drugs to your home or doctor’s office.

To start the mail-order process, call Mercy Care Member Services at 602-263-3000 or 1-800-624-3879 (TTY/TDD 711), Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. to request a mail-order form. Or, you can download the Mail Service Order Form. English | Español.

You can also register online with CVS Caremark. Once registered, you will be able to order refills, renew your prescription and check the status of your order.

 

To help you with a medical issue, your doctor or dentist may prescribe a medication. Be sure to let your doctor know about any other medications you are taking. This includes those from another doctor and medications or herbal supplements that you buy on your own. Some drugs can cause harm if taken together. Telling your doctor what you are taking can help prevent harmful reactions. Before you leave the office, ask these questions:

  • Why am I taking this medication?
  • What is it supposed to do for me?
  • How should the medicine be taken?
  • When?
  • For how many days?
  • What are the possible side effects or allergic reactions of the medicine?
  • What should I do if a side effect happens?
  • What will happen if I don’t take this medication?

Carefully read the drug information the pharmacy gives you when you fill your prescription. It will explain what you should and should not do and possible side effects.

Many doctors can now electronically send prescriptions directly to pharmacies. This can help save you time and an extra trip. Ask your doctor if e‑Prescribing is an option for you.

Mercy Care specialty drugs are filled by CVS Specialty Pharmacy. A specialty pharmacy fills drugs and has other services to help you. The Specialty Drug Program has special services for you:

  • You can talk to a pharmacist 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
  • Counseling about your drug and disease
  • Coordination of care with you and your doctor
  • Delivery of specialty drugs to your home or doctor’s office at no cost to you
  • You can drop off your prescription and pick up your drug at any CVS Pharmacy (including those inside Target stores)

You can call CVS Specialty Pharmacy toll-free at 1-800-237-2767; TTY/TDD: 1-800-863-5488. CVS Specialty Pharmacy will help you with filling your specialty drug. The specialty drug list lists all the specialty drugs available.

Download the Mercy Care formulary

You now have the ability to use the new Formulary Search Tool to find out which medications are on the formulary drug lists. You can search by drug name or drug class. The search tool will show formulary status, generic alternatives and if there are any requirements, such as prior authorization, quantity limits or age limits. The formularies can change.

Is your prescription covered?

If you need medicine, your doctor will choose one from Mercy Care’s list of covered drugs. Ask your doctor to make sure the drug is on the list.

Not sure if a certain drug is covered? Check the Preferred Drug List (PDL). This is a list of drugs that are typically covered if they are medically necessary. To search for a particular drug, click on the binocular icon in the left-hand margin and type the word you are looking for in the search box.

If you need medicine that’s not on the list and you can’t take another kind, your doctor can ask for an exception. Some medicines that don’t need a prescription are also covered when your doctor asks for them.

Prescriptions should be filled at a pharmacy that is part of the Mercy Care network. See if your pharmacy is in our network. You do not have to pay for medicines. However, in some cases, AHCCCS members are required to pay co-payments for prescriptions (for example AHCCCS Care - $2.30 for Generic and $2.30 for Brand). 

Do not make any copayments because Mercy Care cannot pay you back. If you have other insurance, Mercy Care will only pay the copay if the drug is on the Mercy Care drug list.

For more detailed information about your Mercy Care prescription drug coverage, please review your Member Handbook and other plan materials. If you have questions please call Member Services Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m at 602-263-3000 or toll-free 1-800-624-3879 (TTY/TDD 711).

The label on your medication bottle tells you how many refills your doctor has ordered for you. If your doctor has ordered refills, you may only get one refill at a time.

If your doctor has not ordered refills, you must call him/her at least five (5) days before your medication runs out. The doctor may want to see you before giving you a refill.
