It's important to Arizona Complete Health that our members receive drug therapy that is appropriate, high quality and cost effective. We work hard to ensure you have access to safe and effective medications that are medically proven to help you get healthy and stay healthy.
The Preferred Drug List (PDL) is the list of drugs covered by Arizona Complete Health-Complete Care Plan. Arizona Complete Health-Complete Care Plan works with providers and pharmacists to ensure that medications used to treat a variety of conditions and diseases are covered.
Arizona Complete Health-Complete Care Plan covers prescription medication when:
- Your medication is on one of our preferred drug lists
- You get your prescriptions filled at a network pharmacy
- Your prescriptions are written by an in-network medical practitioner
You may be responsible for medication copayments
It is important that you tell all your healthcare providers, including your dentist, about prescriptions you are already taking. Also, tell them about non-prescription medications, vitamins or herbal supplements you take.

- Your provider writes a prescription for you. Ask your provider to make sure that the medicine is on one of the lists.
- Take the prescription to a network pharmacy to have it filled.
- Show your Arizona Complete Health-Complete Care Plan member ID card to the pharmacy staff.

How to find a network pharmacy
- Searching our directory for a network pharmacy
- Calling Member Services at 888-788-4408 (TDD/TTY 771). Ask the representative to help you find a network pharmacy in your area.
All prescriptions must be filled at a network pharmacy. Arizona Complete Health-Complete Care Plan does not cover prescriptions filled at other pharmacies.
Your medicine bottle’s label says how many refills you can have. If you think you may need a refill, you must contact your provider at least five days before you run out of medicine. When you call, ask your provider about getting a refill. Your provider may want you to make an appointment before giving you a refill.

Arizona Complete Health-Complete Care Plan wants you to be as healthy as possible. This includes knowing about the different medicines you need to take. To help, we have included a list of questions you should always ask your provider about a prescription.
