This report examines reimbursement, benefit management and cost sharing issues in Medicaid pharmacy programs. The analysis, conducted by researchers from the Foundation’s Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured and Health Management Associates, focuses on the potential of several measures recently highlighted by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to reduce Medicaid pharmacy costs and is informed, in part, by the perspectives of a group of Medicaid pharmacy administrators convened by the Foundation in May 2011 to discuss current Medicaid pharmacy issues.
