We wanted to share an urgent update on the impending billing changes that were scheduled to take effect on 4/1/2020. In a communication we acquired today from Jessin Joseph, Pharmacy Director with KY Department of Medicaid Services, it was announced the Department has made the decision to delay the implementation of the required 340B modifiers indefinitely. Once the state of emergency has been lifted, the Department will reevaluate and communicate an appropriate date of implementation. The Kentucky DMS Pharmacy web page should be updated shortly to reflect this announcement.
We will continue to monitor this and will provide updates as we get them. If you have any questions or would like to discuss further, please contact our 340B team.
Please continue to monitor our Coronavirus Resources and Information Page and COVID-19 Relief & Operations FAQs for updates.
