Ohio Medicaid Single Formulary went into effect on Jan. 1

The Ohio Department of Medicaid published a Unified Preferred Drug List (UPDL) that went live on January 1. The UPDL applies to the ENTIRE Medicaid population, Managed Care, and Fee for Service (FFS). A few goals of the UPDL include:
  • Reducing the administrative burden for providers by streamlining the prior authorization process across FFS and managed care
  • Consolidating six PDLs into one
  • Facilitating coordination of care for approximately three million covered Medicaid lives.
