The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) invites the public to attend a stakeholder meeting on October 24 regarding the Michigan Medicaid Health Plan Common Formulary.
In order to streamline drug coverage policies for Medicaid and Healthy Michigan Plan beneficiaries and providers, MDHHS has developed a formulary that is common across all contracted health plans for the current Comprehensive Health Plan contract. The intent is to reduce interruptions in a beneficiary’s drug therapy due to a change in health plan.
The Common Formulary also includes certain drug utilization management tools, such as prior authorization criteria and step therapies. Health plans may be less restrictive, but not more restrictive, than the coverage parameters of the Common Formulary. The Common Formulary is located at Michigan.gov/MCOpharmacy.
The purpose of the stakeholder meetings is to provide a forum for the public to comment on the Common Formulary. Please note that drug rebates, the Fee-for Service formulary, and drugs that are covered under the Fee-for-Service benefit are not being reviewed as part of this project. In addition, the stakeholder meetings are not intended to be a venue for pharmaceutical drug product-specific presentations.
