Pharmacy providers must enroll with HHSC before participating in any managed care network. Refer to the Enrollment Process section to learn more.

Each MCO contracts with a pharmacy benefits manager (PBM) to process prescription claims. The PBM contracts with individual pharmacies. The MCO must allow any enrolled pharmacy provider willing to accept the financial terms and conditions of the contract to enroll in the MCO’s network. Each MCO develops its participating pharmacy network for the delivery of services.
