Common Pediatric Drugs: Which Insurance Plans Cover Them and What They Cost

Columbus, OH — May 2017

Formularies are impossible to track even for the most diligent clinician; health care plans constantly change covered medications and their costs. Partners For Kids, the accountable care organization made up of Nationwide Children’s Hospital and more than 1,000 doctors in Ohio, is trying to help.

Partners For Kids publishes a list of commonly-prescribed medications, their costs, and how they are covered by Ohio’s Medicaid Managed Care Plans. While state-specific, the list can serve as a general guide for many providers.

Download (PDF) the most recent list.

Partners For Kids provides regular updates to the list at this link http://partnersforkids.org/resource/#prescribing. You can bookmark it and reference when needed. Evidence-based prescription guidelines for acne, gastroesophageal reflux, head lice and other frequently-seen pediatric conditions can also be found there at the link.
