Pharmacy Services

Effective January 1, 2020, the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (DHS) implemented a statewide preferred drug list (PDL). This implementation required all Medical Assistance managed care organizations (MCOs) in the physical health HealthChoices and Community HealthChoices plans to move to the mandated statewide PDL.

As part of our dedication to Participants, Keystone First Community HealthChoices (CHC) works with providers and pharmacies across the state to ensure those who need care have access to effective health care services.
