Excerpt from Resource:

Medicaid is a joint Federal-State program that pays for medical assistance for individuals and families with low incomes and relatively few assets.  Although pharmacy coverage is an optional benefit under federal Medicaid law, all States currently provide coverage for outpatient prescription drugs to all categorically eligible individuals and most other enrollees within their state Medicaid programs.

The Medicaid prescription drug programs include the management, development, and administration of systems and data collection necessary to operate the Medicaid Drug Rebate program, the Federal Upper Limitcalculation for generic drugs, and the Drug Utilization Review program.
