Makena as a Pharmacy Benefit
Makena® (hydroxyprogesterone caproate injection) is available as a pharmacy benefit through the Texas Medicaid Vendor Drug Program.
Makena requires clinical prior authorization for Medicaid fee-for-service clients.

Medicaid health plans may elect to require the same clinical prior authorization for Makena. Please refer to the appropriate health plan for specific requirements.
Makena and the compounded version of 17P will continue to be available as a Medicaid medical benefit. For additional information about the medical benefit, please visit TMHP or call the TMHP Contact Center at 1-800-925-9126.
