Texas HHSC logoThis week some pharmacy groups met with the Vendor Drug Program (VDP) regarding the specialty drug list (SDL) and to make sure Medicaid beneficiaries have access to their medications at community pharmacies. The meeting focused on criteria the VDP is considering to determine if a medication should go on the SDL.

TPA Board Member Jay Bueche and Member/AIP Past President Mark Newberry enlightened the VDP with examples of how the criteria is vague and could be a broad net to sweep even more medications into a specialty network. The VDP understood pharmacy’s concerns and will take them into consideration. Special thanks to the Alliance of Independent Pharmacists (AIP) for coordinating and attending the meeting and to the Federation of Drug Stores (TFDS) for attending as well.

If you see particular drugs on the SDL that you feel should not be there, please contact TPA's division director of public affairs, Stephanie Chiarello.
