Ohio: State proposes Medicaid dispensing fee increase

NCPA February 27, 2023

The Ohio state budget is proposing a 5.7 percent increase to the Medicaid dispensing fee. The transition to the single PBM was cost-neutral and did not adequately address pharmacies’ cost to dispense. The proposed increase is based on results from the November 2022 cost of dispensing survey. More information about the upcoming changes, including a value-based supplemental dispensing fee, can be found in this Medicaid budget overview.
