Medicaid and group Medicaid health plans such as Blue Cross Complete, Molina, Total Healthcare, etc. have sent notice that beginning July 1, 2019 these health plans will prohibit payment for prescription drug claims written by any prescribers who are not enrolled in CHAMPS.
Our office will NOT be enrolling with the CHAMPS enrollment as we are not Medicaid providers.
As we have always warned, patients wishing to use any of their Medicaid benefits elsewhere and continue with us as their primary physicians are going to find it increasingly difficult. Medicaid patients who do not wish to pay out of pocket for their medications should work on transitioning to a Primary Care Physician who is enrolled in CHAMPS.
If you are unsure if you have a Medicaid plan, please check with your healthcare provider or bring your card to the office and we can assist you.
