Dose Optimization

The Maryland Medicaid Pharmacy Program maintains dose limitations on some medications. These limits are based on the manufacturers’ recommended dosing found in the product labeling. 

A table showing the specific limitations and a prior authorization form for obtaining quantities in excess of those listed, if clinically indicated, can be found at or by calling (800) 932-3918.
