The California Medical Association (CMA) is partnering with the California Primary Care Association and Magellan on a webinar that will help physicians understand the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) phased implementation plan for Medi-Cal Rx. The free one-hour webinar will be August 18, 2022, from 2-3 p.m.
Given systemwide issues in implementing the full pharmacy transition in January, DHCS decided to create a waiver to exempt the need to submit prior authorizations (PAs) for most drugs and removed drug utilization review (DUR) codes. Now that we are eight months into Medi-Cal Rx implementation, DHCS reinstated DUR codes on July 22 and plans to begin reinstating PAs for certain drug classes as soon as September 16.
During the webinar, Magellan will provide an overview of the DHCS phased implementation plan for Medi-Cal Rx. They will also touch on the current NDC/CDL list and overview of the CMM platform.
