On Feb. 1, 2021, HHSC will begin using a browser-based submission portal for information currently submitted on the Certificate of Information (COI) (HHS Form 1326). Drug manufacturers or labelers submit this form to request Medicaid include drugs on the Texas Drug Code Index (TDCI). Currently, manufacturers submit the form by fax, mail, or email. The new browser-based eCOI portal is accessible through either Microsoft Internet Explorer or Chrome browsers. We encourage drug manufacturers to contact us to request access to the eCOI portal. HHSC will no longer accept Form 1326 after March 31, 2021.

More information is available on our manufacturer resources page. Email vdp-formulary@hhsc.state.tx.us with questions or comments.
