If you have insurance
Kaiser won’t cover your prescription
Our medical providers are not Kaiser providers, nor are they referred by your Kaiser provider. Therefore, Kaiser will not cover your prescription and you will have to pay the cash price.
Kaiser does have a reasonable price
Luckily, Kaiser has very reasonable cash prices on their prescriptions. (For instance, doxycycline monohydrate tablets 100mg, #30 cost around $20.00 cash price.)
Share your Kaiser member number with us
It’s very helpful if you provide your Kaiser member number to us. That makes it much easier for our nurse to phone in your prescription.
Make sure to specify which pharmacy
Some Kaiser locations have multiple pharmacies in one building or campus. So please be specific which pharmacy location you would like to pick up your prescription so our nurse can call in your prescription correctly.
Medicaid rules and regulations vary vastly depending on the state.
Most states will only cover prescriptions if your provider is a licensed Medicaid provider in your state. If this is the case, then the cost of your prescription won’t be covered, since our providers aren’t licensed Medicaid providers.
Doxycycline coverage varies depending on your state. Some states cover it, some states cover only an “emergency supply” (10-14 days) and some states don’t cover it at all. If your state only covers a short supply or none at all, you have the option of discussing prescribing an oral antibiotic treatment with your in-person Medicaid provider.
Some pharmacies will accept a GoodRx coupon and permit you to pay the coupon cash price if your Medicaid will not cover the cost. Please see the article “If you don’t have insurance” to learn more.
