Ohio Medicaid to adopt transparent pharmacy services model 

The Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) has directed its five managed care plans to “terminate [their] contracts with pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) based on ‘spread’ pricing, adopt new practices based on a transparent ‘pass-through’ pricing model, and enter into new contracts with vendors who can provide services based on that model” by January 1, 2019.
