Chapter 5160-9 Pharmacy Services

5160-9-01 Eligible providers of pharmacy services and cost of dispensing survey.

(A) Provider types eligible for payment for pharmacy services

(1) A "pharmacy provider" designation and provider number can be obtained by a "terminal distributor of dangerous drugs," as defined in section 4729.01 of the Revised Code, who also:

(a) Has a valid drug enforcement agency (DEA) registration; and

(b) Has a pharmacist as the "responsible person," as defined in rule 4729-5-11 of the Administrative Code; and

(c) Complies with eligible provider rules 5160-1-17 to 5160-1- 17.11 of the Administrative Code and signs a provider agreement with the Ohio department of medicaid (ODM).

(2) A "hospital" provider acting as a pharmacy in accordance with paragraphs (A)(1)(a) to (A)(1)(c) of this rule can obtain a "pharmacy" specialty designation and bill for self-administered take-home drugs.

(3) "Clinic" providers that have a valid medicaid provider agreement and have met the criteria under the Revised Code to personally furnish pharmaceuticals but are not eligible to become a "pharmacy provider" as defined in paragraph (A)(1) of this rule, are eligible to apply for a "pharmacy" specialty designation and bill for self-administered take-home drugs.

(B) Provider types described in paragraph (A) of this rule are required to submit a complete response to the cost of dispensing survey conducted according to Section 5164.752 of the Revised Code.

(1) A complete response to the cost of dispensing survey includes supplying complete information about the terminal distributor for, at the least, all of the categories below:

(a) Demographics;

(b) Number of prescriptions dispensed annually, broken out by medicaid fee-for-service and other payers and including a total volume for the location;

(c) Sales and cost of goods sold;

(d) Direct expenses;

(e) Overhead expenses; and

(f) Certification that the person who submits the survey believes the information to be true, correct, and complete.

(2) Providers that do not submit a complete response to the cost of dispensing survey may be paid a lower professional dispensing fee (PDF) in accordance with paragraph (E)(1) of rule 5160-9-05 of the Administrative Code.

(3) Newly-enrolled providers shall be assigned to the dispensing fee described in paragraph (E)(1)(b)(vi) of rule 5160-9-05 of the Administrative Code, unless the provider received the new provider number due to a change in ownership. In that situation, the department shall use the number of prescriptions reported by the previous owner to determine the PDF. In a situation other than a change of ownership, a provider is newly-enrolled if the date of approval of an application to enroll as a provider, or the date of approval of a pharmacy specialty designation, is less than ninety days prior to the distribution of the most recently-conducted cost of dispensing survey. The date of approval is not the effective date of the provider agreement or specialty designation when the effective date is made retroactive by ODM.

(4) If a provider experiences a change in prescription volume during the first nine months following the implementation of a PDF category significant enough that it would result in the provider falling into a different PDF category, the provider may submit a written request with supporting documentation to ODM, no later than the thirtieth day of April of the first year, requesting assignment to a different category. If the supporting documentation justifies an adjustment, ODM will assign a new PDF category effective the first day of July for the second year.

(5) Providers that did not submit a complete response to the cost of dispensing survey conducted in 2016 may submit an attestation of the number of prescriptions filled in the provider's most recently completed fiscal year or other twelve-month period beginning no earlier than January 1, 2015. The attestation shall follow the format posted on the ODM website athttp://pharmacy.medicaid.ohio.gov.

(1) Item description. This column describes the supply item.

(2) Medicaid coverage status. This column has one of two possible indicators for each item.

(3) Covered for dual eligible. This column indicates whether the supply is covered under the medicaid program for an individual who is a dual eligible as defined in rule 5160-1-05 of the Administrative Code. "Y" indicates the supply is covered for a dual eligible. "N" indicates the supply is not covered for a dual eligible.

(4) Maximum units. This column indicates the largest number of units of the supply that may be dispensed within the time period indicated. Claims submitted that exceed the maximum units shall be denied.

(1) Selected products from the medical supply categories included in the appendix to this rule have been designated as preferred brands, as specified on the ODM web site at http://pharmacy.medicaid.ohio.gov.

(2) Products that have not been designated as preferred require prior authorization.

(a) Only the prescribing provider or a member of the prescribing provider's staff may request prior authorization.

The PDF shall be assigned in accordance with the following criteria:

(i) For providers reporting fewer than fifty thousand prescriptions, thirteen dollars sixty-four cents.

(b) For dates of service prior to the effective date of this rule, claims submitted for infusion compounds will receive a dispensing fee of ten dollars per day, with a maximum dispensing fee of seventy dollars. Infusion compounds include intravenous (IV) therapy for chemotherapy, pain management and antibiotics.

To qualify for payment of the sterile compound PDF, the sterile compound must be mixed by the pharmacy to the final form under sterile conditions. Products that are mixed or activated at the point of administration by connecting components or breaking seals without the need for sterile conditions are not eligible for a sterile compound PDF.

(d) Compounded drugs other than TPN or sterile compounds.

(i) For dates of service prior to the effective date of this rule, compounded drugs that are not infusion compounds or TPN claims will receive a single six dollar dispensing fee per prescription.

(ii) For dates of service on or after the effective date of this rule, compounded drugs that are not eligible for the TPN or sterile compound PDF will receive the PDF determined under paragraph (E)(1)(b) of this rule.

(3) Vaccine or injectable drug dispensing that qualifies for payment of an administration fee shall not qualify for medicaid payment of a PDF.

(4) Notwithstanding paragraph (E)(1) of this rule, prescribed drugs, other than compounded drugs, dispensed to patients residing in LTCFs shall be limited to one PDF per patient, per equivalent product, per rolling twenty-five days. In the event that multiple supplies of an equivalent product are dispensed within twenty-five days, only the ingredient cost shall be paid.

(2) No payment shall be made under this chapter for any drug that may be covered by medicare part D for an individual who is eligible for coverage by medicare part D, regardless of whether the individual is actually enrolled in a part D plan or the particular drug is covered by the individual's part D plan.

(3) In accordance with rule 5160-1-08 of the Administrative Code, medicaid is the payer of last resort, except as between medicaid and the Ohio children with medical handicaps program described in rule 5160-1-03 of the Administrative Code, where medicaid pays after any third party liability (TPL) and medicare but before the Ohio children with medical handicaps program. If TPL exists, the Medicaid payment shall be the lowest of the following:

(a) The provider's billed charges minus the sum of all TPL payments; or

(b) The calculated allowable minus the sum of all TPL payments; or

(c) The patient responsibility amount assigned by the last third-party payer.
