The New York State Department of Health (DOH) is hosting an informational webinar about the transition of the Medicaid Pharmacy benefit from Managed Care to the fee-for-service (FFS) program. This is the first of a series of recurring monthly webinars about this topic, which are open to all interested MRT stakeholders. There will be a designated question and answer period at the end of the webinar.

The All-Stakeholders Call – Medicaid Pharmacy Benefit Transition webinar will be held on Tuesday, August 16, 2022, from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM. Following the webinar, the presentation will be posted to the DOH website.

Please complete the registration form. Registration is required to attend this webinar. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with information about joining the webinar.

Please plan to join the webinar 5 minutes ahead of the start time. This will reduce wait times getting into the webinar and allow for a prompt start.

Thank you.
