New York launches Medicaid pharmacy benefit program 

New York state aims to increase access to affordable prescription medications through its new pharmacy benefit program, which launched April 1.

The program, NYRx, will give the state's eight million Medicaid enrollees increased access to prescription drugs through a 5,000-pharmacy network — the largest in New York. The model bypasses the need for managed care organizations to administer pharmacy benefits, as the state's Medicaid program will pay for pharmacy costs directly.

Pharmacists and clinicians will also prescribe medications based on a uniform list, eliminating the need to manage various coverage rules and limitations for each managed care organization.
