Now What? Steps for Enrolling in Provider Networks and Billing Medical Claims

Published by Texas Pharmacy Association


Summary

The CEO of the Washington State Pharmacy Association will share his firsthand experiences in Washington, one of the first states to pass statewide provider status. Washington's experience offers a road map to payment for services in Texas, which passed two bills this year amending the Insurance Code to allow pharmacists to be in provider networks and to be reimbursed for services that are within their scope of practice. This session will explain Washington State efforts on health insurance compensation coverage for pharmacist services that served as model for other states, describe state advocacy efforts that led to the passage of legislation that includes pharmacists in medical provider networks, and identify steps to get pharmacists paid through medical claims by health plans as healthcare providers.

At the completion of this activity, the pharmacists and technicians will be able to:
1. Explain Washington State efforts on health insurance compensation coverage for pharmacist services that served as model for other states.
2. Describe state advocacy efforts that led to the passage of legislation that includes pharmacists in medical provider networks.
