The Division of Medical Assistance governs Medicaid reimbursement for pharmaceuticals. Any pharmacy or dispensing physician whether in-state or out-of-state who wishes to submit claims for payment must submit an application for participation to the Division. An accepted application for participation must be on file with the Division before any reimbursement for any item or service will be made.
An out-of-state pharmacy may participate and receive payment for dispensed drugs only if the recipient has been injured or suffered a disease or illness while temporarily absent from Colorado. The State will then reimburse for drugs dispensed on an emergency basis only. Exceptions to this requirement are for those pharmacies located in towns outside but bordering the State of Colorado that provide regular services to Colorado recipients or those pharmacies who provide drugs for foster care children or other recipients that permanently reside in other states and are wards of the State of Colorado.
Medicaid billing by pharmacy must follow prescribed procedures.
