California forgives $142 million in Medi-Cal clawbacks

NCPA July 1, 2022

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) signed the state budget, including a provision that forgives $142 million in Medi-Cal clawbacks from independent pharmacies in the state. The clawbacks were the result of California’s retroactive adoption of NADAC in its Medicaid program and would have had devastating impacts for pharmacies across the state. Congratulations to the California Pharmacists Association and all community pharmacy advocates for this important victory that will allow California pharmacies to continue serving their patients.
