Tribal Best Practices and Critical Issues:
Medicaid Pharmacy Reimbursement for Tribal Programs

The Webinar focused on:

This Webinar was a follow-up on the topic of:  Medicaid Pharmacy Reimbursement for Tribal Programs. We are planning for an interactive discussion and would like to engage with participants in identifying preferred options under an encounter rate payment approach.

During the Webinar, the findings from a recent TSGAC national survey of state-specific Medicaid outpatient prescription drug (OPD) payment policies for Indian health care providers will be reviewed.  We will discuss the current status of Medicaid payment policies for OPD services and the elements to consider when converting to an encounter rate methodology.
