The Texas Health Steps website has new resources for primary care providers and other health professionals, including a pharmacy continuing education (CE) course available for credit and two new quick courses:
- The pharmacy CE course is accredited and includes requirements related to pharmacy enrollment, using the PDL and online formulary, obtaining prior authorization, and dispensing a 72-hour emergency supply of medication.
- A Dispenser’s Guide to Texas Medicaid Outpatient Pharmacy Benefits quick course for pharmacy staff.
- A Prescriber’s Guide to Texas Medicaid Outpatient Pharmacy Prior Authorization quick course.
Quick courses cover the same topics but take about five minutes to complete and include relevant information you can put into practice right away. More information is available from the Texas Health Steps website.
