It is critical that members contact the Chairman and staff of the House Health and Human Services Finance Committee TODAY to urge support for including HF 1819 (Pharmacy Reimbursement Modernization) in the House HHS Policy Omnibus bill currently being drafted. These changes were mandated in the CMS Outpatient Covered Drug rule, passed several years ago, and provide much needed relief for pharmacies from Minnesota's chronically low Medicaid reimbursement. Without your urgent help, Minnesota will not be on track to comply with the CMS Covered Outpatient Drugs Rule as required by April 1.
You don't need to be an expert on the bill or go into a lengthy explanation. Just call or email one or more of the three people below, tell them who you are, and tell them something to the effect that you urge them to include HF 1819, Pharmacy Reimbursement Modernization, in the HHS (Health & Human Services) Omnibus bill that is currently being drafted, and then thank them. That's it!
Please share this alert with your pharmacy team and ask they that they call and send an email TODAY!
