Public Comment on MDHHS Medicaid Health Plan Common Formulary

Comments Due February 21, 2020

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) is soliciting comments from the public on the Michigan Medicaid Health Plan Common Formulary. The Common Formulary applies to pharmacy claims paid by Medicaid Managed Care Organizations – it will not apply to claims paid through Fee-for-Service. The public may submit comments on the drugs included or not included on the Common Formulary, new drug products, prior authorization criteria, step therapy criteria and other topics related to drug coverage under the Common Formulary. The comments will be reviewed by MDHHS and the Michigan Medicaid Health Plan Common Formulary Workgroup. The next drug classes to be reviewed by the Workgroup include Cardiac, Ophthalmic, Electrolyte Balance-Nutritional Products, Smoking Deterrents, and Biologics. Changes may be made to the Common Formulary based on comments received. Comments will be solicited once per calendar quarter.
