Pharmacy Dispensing Fee Announcement

Pharmacy Dispensing Fee Announcement

On September 14, 2011, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana reversed its July 8, 2011, Temporary Restraining Order and denied the Motion for a Preliminary Injunction, allowing the State to implement and enforce LSA #11-382(E). Consequently, pharmacy providers subject to this rule will be reimbursed up to a maximum of $3.00 dispensing fee per pharmacy claim retroactive to July 1, 2011 (see BT201120). The IHCP will systematically mass adjust claims with dates of service on or after July 1, 2011, through the implementation date. Providers should monitor forthcoming banners, bulletins, and newsletter articles for additional details regarding this adjustment activity.
