PCAN Calls On Federal Government to Reconsider Preliminary Approval of Texas' Medicaid Waiver Request
Date:9/19/2011

nsed or Medicaid patients.  Such drastic cuts are unsustainable for many pharmacies, particularly those in underserved rural and urban areas where prescription volume is heavily geared toward Medicaid recipients.

According to a study conducted for PCAN by The Perryman Group, proposed reimbursement cuts and the move to managed care would lead to the closure of hundreds of pharmacies, the loss of thousands of jobs and the elimination of access to pharmacies in many areas, both for the general population and for those receiving Medicaid.  The Perryman Group estimated nearly 43,000 job losses, 770 pharmacy closures and a $3.1 billion loss to the economy from the move to managed care for pharmacy.

PCAN further stressed that the managed care model is inappropriate for many segments of the Medicaid population, including the blind and disabled, who rely heavily on special services and counseling provided by pharmacists in addition to prescriptions.

"All Texans should be concerned about what's at stake here: quality health care, access to their local pharmacy and jobs in their community," concluded Gray.

Gray urged local pharmacists and concerned citizens to sign the Texas Pharmacy Protection Petition at www.rxchoiceandaccess.com.
