VDP Electronic Certificate of Information Portal For Drug Manufacturers Becomes View-Only March 15

Published on

On Oct. 13, 2023, HHSC announced a contract award to Gainwell Technologies as the Texas Vendor Drug Program (VDP) pharmacy benefits administrator. Beginning Saturday, March 30, 2024, Gainwell will be responsible for formulary management, including the electronic Certificate of Information (eCOI) process for VDP formulary additions.

On March 15, the current eCOI portal maintained by the current vendor, Conduent, will switch to view-only. Manufacturers will not be able to add or revise drug information between March 15, 2024 and March 29, 2024. All drug information submitted before March 15 will appear in the Gainwell system on March 30.

Gainwell will send manufacturers information about registering for the new eCOI portal and a portal training schedule.

Refer to the System Transition Resources for more information about this change. You can also register with the HHSC email notification service to review emails from VDP about the change.
