IHCP PBM Transition to Catamaran Corporation Affects Web-based Pharmacy Resources


Effective May 24, 2013, Catamaran Corporation will serve as the new Pharmacy Benefit Manager (PBM) and pharmacy claims processor for the Indiana Health Coverage Programs (IHCP). The transition requires changes to where web-based pharmacy information is located. Some pharmacy links on indianamedicaid.com, including those in News & Announcements items, bulletins, banner pages, and newsletters, will be broken. In addition, if you have bookmarked frequently used pharmacy reference materials on the website, those bookmarks may no longer work.

New and archived pharmacy information will continue to be available through indianamedicaid.com during and after the transition. Effective May 24, 2013, most pharmacy information will be consolidated and accessible via the Pharmacy Services Quick Link at indianamedicaid.com. Users can reestablish bookmarks from the new pharmacy web pages. Chapter 9 - IHCP Pharmacy Services Benefit of the IHCP Provider Manual will continue to be accessible from the Manuals page at indianamedicaid.com. For ease of reference, all pharmacy-related content, some of which was previously included in other chapters of the manual, will appear in Chapter 9 effective with this transition.
