The announcement of the CVS/Aetna merger has solidified our need to continue to address PBM issues.
FTC Comment Letter on CVS/Aetna Merger
PSSNY collaborated with the National Alliance of State Pharmacy Associations (NASPA) on a comment letter in response to the Federal Trade Commission's Workshop, "Understanding Competition in Prescription Drug Markets: Entry and Supply Chain Dynamics". NASPA promotes leadership, sharing, learning, and policy exchange among state societies and pharmacy leaders nationwide.
PSSNY continues to develop media interest in pharmacy. We are looking for members who have stories to share that either focus on business issues or great patient care. Please tell us your stories here. http://www.pssny.org/surveys/?id=Call_for_Stories
CVS/Caremark has confirmed that they have declined PSSNY's request to allow pharmacies to rebill claims from the October 26 - November 18, 2017, time period.
CVS/Caremark maintains that it is in compliance with New York State's MAC appeal law and is allowing for approved appeals to be reprocessed so there is no need to address the denied claims from that time period.
For specific MAC appeal claim issues, call CVS/Caremark's Pharmacy Help Desk at 1-847-559-3977. This will create a tracking process for your claims.
If you are experiencing general issues or contract problems, call CVS/Caremark at 1-866 488-4708.
