DHCS Pharmacy Stakeholder Outreach Event

June 17, 2016
  • The California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) is continuing a series of stakeholder outreach events taking place this month through early August.
  • These outreach events will initiate and support surveys that will inform Medi-Cal’s drug reimbursement rates as well as the professional dispensing fee or fees for California outpatient pharmacy providers.
  • Topics will include survey participation responsibilities for California outpatient pharmacy providers.
  • Those surveys will be performed by Mercer Health and Benefits, LLC starting in July, 2016.
  • DHCS encourages stakeholder participation in these events (e.g., California Pharmacists Association, California Retailers Association, National Association of Chain Drug Stores, major chain pharmacies, pharmacy wholesalers, the Hemophilia Council of California, Indian Health Representatives, and California outpatient pharmacy providers).
