Medical Drug Management

OhioHealthy Medical Plan recognizes that a comprehensive approach to managing specialty drugs, including high cost oncology drugs, covered under the medical and pharmacy benefits is critical to all of our customers. Many new specialty drugs have been introduced to the marketplace and many of these specialty drugs are being administered to patients at their doctor’s office, a hospital outpatient facility, or stand-alone outpatient infusion center. These are not the types of drugs that could be obtained at a drug store. To help manage these drugs, OhioHealthy Medical Plan has partnered with Archimedes for a Medical Drug Management (MDM) program.   

Components of our MDM program include: 

  • Requiring a Prior Authorization for some medications 
  • Requiring a National Drug Code (NDC) on medications that require prior authorization 
  • Editing outpatient and professional claims to ensure a medication has been approved and the dose administered matches the approval 
  • Application of maximum daily dose edits on a number of targeted medications
