Attention Medical and Pharmacy Providers:

The PDL document has been updated from the November meeting. The updated PDL is under the PDL link on this page, and the dates for each drug class implementation are listed below the category. Please contact Pharmacy Services at 1.800.999.3371 select option 0, select option 1 for further clarification

Attention Providers:

DMMA with guidance from the Drug Utilization Review Board is addressing overdose deaths that can be directly linked to benzodiazepines. Two policies are going into effect. Therapeutic duplication of benzodiazepines, classified as using two or more of drugs in this class, will now require a prior authorization. Prior authorization for these medications will be needed when there is concomitant use with chronic opioid analgesics. Clinical authorization requests can be submitted in cases that have clear medical necessity and other medical and pharmacological approaches have failed.

Pharmaceutical and Therapeutics (P&T) Committee

The Pharmaceutical and Therapeutics (P&T) Committee has been established by DMMA to provide clinical leadership in the selection of preferred medications. This selection will be based on a review of the relative clinical effectiveness and cost of products within selected therapeutic classes. The program's objective is to achieve quality pharmaceutical care for recipients enrolled in the Department's Medicaid programs while providing significant state savings.

The DMAP policy for pharmacies can be found in the Pharmacy Provider Specific Policy Manual. Appendix F of the manual contains all forms required for prior authorization of medications. The manual can be accessed on the left sidebar.

The Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) supports Retro-DUR and Pro-DUR functionality. Clinical data is used by the Delaware Drug Utilization Review (DUR) Board to evaluate trends in prescribing and utilization as well as cost savings from decreased hospitalizations and avoided expenses for inappropriate therapeutic sessions. Follow the DUR Board link on the sidebar at the left for notes from the Delaware DUR Board meetings.

Effective April 1st, 2014, DMAP pays based off the NADAC pricing methodology along with a dispensing fee except where the usual and customary is less. In the event that there is no NADAC price, the product will reimburse off the lower of DMAC or AWP minus 19% plus the dispensing fee. The DMAC list can be accessed on the left sidebar. NOTE: Several times a year, HP will provide a "draft" DMAC to preview upcoming DMAC pricing. Use caution when selecting the current DMAC.

The What's New page provides a description of the most recent changes in DMAP policy and procedures. Notification of provider alerts, Special Bulletins and provider manual changes are available through this link.
