Legislators File Bill Extending Sunset Date of State-Run Medicaid Formulary

TAHP

HB 1917 (attached) was filed this week by Raymond, Zerwas, and Four Price.  The bill extends the sunset date of the state run VDP Medicaid formulary to 2030.  Current statute gives MCOs full control of the formulary in 2018.  TAHP is strongly opposed to this bill and has begun making visits to share reasons for opposition.  See our one-page legislative guide on the benefits and savings that will be achieved by transitioning the formulary to MCO management here.
