Tennessee Pharmacists Association
REMINDER: The Bureau of TennCare disseminated the following information to pharmacy owners and managers in mid-February. The Tennessee Pharmacists Association strongly recommends that a representative from each pharmacy participate in the stakeholder information webinar on March 2, 2017, described below.
From the Bureau of TennCare:
TennCare has been conducting a TN actual acquisition cost survey (AAC) and a professional dispensing fee survey (PDF) in order to be compliant by April 1st, 2017 with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) published federal Covered Outpatient Drugs Final Rule (CMS-2345-FC). TennCare is very grateful to those of you who participated in the survey. TennCare’s goal has been to determine an accurate and consistent reimbursement methodology for the state and provide transparency to our pharmacy partners throughout the process. To aid in this goal, TennCare is hosting a stakeholder information session on March 2nd from 9:30 – 11 AM CST (10:30 AM – Noon EST). Myers and Stauffer LC (MSLC) and Mercer, the state’s vendors conducting the two surveys, will share results from both the AAC and PDF surveys and provide guidance on implementation of the new methodology.
The stakeholder information session will be a webinar held on March 2nd from 9:30-11:00 a.m. CST that will address the results of both of these efforts. The webinar will be hosted by TennCare, and the information to participate in the webinar is provided below. Please pre-register for the webinar using the link below. The webinar will be recorded and viewable if you or your representative is unable to make it. All participants must register at the link below in order to participate in the webinar. Once registered, you will receive further instructions to access the webinar. If you or your representative is unable to make it, the webinar will be recorded and posted on our vendors’ websites once available.
