A maintenance drug list is a list of drugs that are prescribed for managing specific health conditions over long periods of time. These drugs are usually prescribed for chronic illnesses, and many health insurers will cover them.

Insuranceopedia explains Maintenance Drug List

There are many illnesses that require maintenance drugs. Some of the common ones include diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure. Maintenance drugs allow those who suffer from these chronic conditions to keep their symptoms under control and maintain a relatively healthy and normal life.

Health insurers will typically only cover expenses for maintenance drugs that the appropriate authorities have included in the maintenance drug list. Drugs that aren't on the list often have to be paid out of pocket by the insured.
