340B The Carve-out of the Pharmacy Benefit from Medicaid Managed Care and Fiscal Implications

New York State is exploring various methods to balance the State’s budget deficit. One of the leading initiatives is to carve-out the pharmacy benefit from Medicaid managed care. This initiative could result in a trickle-down to the CHCs’ net margins they receive under the 340B Discount Drug program. Presenters will focus on how this carve-out could impact financial performance, provide a financial projection template as well as guidance on financial performance enhancement strategies.
