The purpose of this white paper is to provide Medicaid Directors and State Agency personnel who are new to Medicaid with guidance on the components of an effective Medicaid pharmacy program. We define such a program as one that provides Medicaid members with access to medically necessary medications, that are:
- aligned with best clinical practice, and
- provided in a transparent environment (clinical, governance, price).
This white paper has been co-authored by Commonwealth Medicine and the New England States Consortium Systems Organization.
