An update to the Texas Drug Code Index Certification of Information (COI) (Form 1326) is now available. HHSC requires drug manufacturers or labelers to submit the form to have drug considered for coverage to the Texas Drug Code Index, or formulary. The revised form includes a question about liability insurance and several drug handling questions to determine if the drug can be classified as a specialty drug. VDP will accept prior versions of the COI through Apr. 30. HHSC will only accept the new form, dated Mar. 2019, as of May 1.
