April 13, 2020

On April 10, VDP temporarily revised the preferred drug list to address reported possible drug shortages of products in the Topical Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory drug class. The change allows providers to prescribe these drugs without requiring a non-preferred prior authorization and people enrolled in Medicaid continued access to necessary medication. A list of the affected drugs is below. This is a temporary change until the preferred products are sufficiently available in the market. Contact vdp-formulary@hhsc.state.tx.us with questions or for more information.
