Oregon Medicaid FFS Drug Class List


This is the Oregon Health Plan fee-for-service Preferred Drug List and drug prior authorization (PA) searchable database.

All active and available drugs reported by First DataBank are included if they provide a federal rebate or are preferred.

Drugs are assigned to a PDL class if it has been reviewed by the Oregon Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee (P&T) for comparative effectiveness and safety. All other drugs are classified by default to the First DataBank Standard Therapeutic Class. There is generally a $3 co-pay for branded drugs and $1 co-pay for generic drugs.

Drugs of higher effectiveness and/or safety or that are similar with lower cost are listed as preferred (Y). The co-pay is waived for preferred drugs. Drugs of lower effectiveness and /or safety or that are similar with higher cost are listed as non-preferred (N or V). Null (i.e. blank) indicates the class or specific drug has not been reviewed for PDL placement and are subject to copays.

Non-preferred drugs listed as N require a PA for pharmacy payment and eligible patients will encounter a co-pay. New drugs approved by the FDA exclusively for indications that are not funded by the Oregon Health Plan or are in existing PDL classes will be listed as N until reviewed by the P&T Committee and are subject to the New Drug Policy. For instructions on requesting a PA, see the Oregon Medicaid PA Criteria.

Non-preferred drugs listed as V (voluntary) do not require PA but eligible patients will encounter a co-pay at the pharmacy.

This page lists each drug class with links to the P&T meeting minutes where the class or drugs within the class were discussed. Further information on specific drugs can be found on the individual class page (click on the class name to be taken to its page). Alternatively you can search for individual drugs by brand or generic name.

Each individual drug class page lists any supporting documents presented at P&T for reference and lists the PDL status (Y, N, V or null) of each drug in the class. PA or QL (quantity limit) indicates the drug requires prior authorization for safety considerations or to promote appropriate step-therapy and links to the current approval criteria.
