RFI # 062912 DHCAA-JH

Request for Information for Specialty Pharmacy Utilization and Cost Management

The Division of Health Care Access and Accountability (DHCAA) in the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (the Department or DHS) administers the ForwardHealth programs, including Wisconsin Medicaid, BadgerCare Plus, and SeniorCare , which pay for health care services for eligible low-income families, elderly, and disabled residents of the State.

An examination of twelve months of outpatient pharmacy claims data, limited to drugs appearing on the ForwardHealth specialty drug list (excluding Synagis), from calendar year 2009 shows that total specialty pharmacy spend was approximately $81 million representing almost 45,000 claims and nearly 25% of the total ForwardHealth pharmacy spend. The average per claim cost was $1,816. The top 20 drugs by paid claim accounted for approximately 65% of the dollars spent and represent 62% of the claims. This also represents 8,635 patients or less than 1% of total ForwardHealth population, with an average claims cost of $9,408 per member.

Specialty pharmacy is a continually increasing cost for Medicaid agencies and other health care payers. Factors contributing to the growth in specialty pharmacy include:

  • Approval of new specialty medications;
  • Additional indications for existing drugs; and
  • Increasing number of patients diagnosed and seeking treatment.

Industry approaches to address specialty cost and utilization management have included the acquisition of specialty pharmacy companies, restrictive contracting to achieve concentrated buying power, and the development of cost and utilization management strategies. DHCAA is interested in learning more about innovative approaches and options for management of specialty pharmacy utilization that preserve access and quality of care.

Deadline: Proposals are due by close of business (5:00 p.m.) on July 25, 2007.

RFI # 0612 DLTC-JB

Care Management IT System for Wisconsin's IRIS Program

The State of Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) has been pursuing redesign of its Medicaid long-term care programs for several years, with an emphasis on developing Medicaid HCBS programs that provide effective alternatives to institutional and large residential settings whenever possible, for target populations that include the elderly and adults with physical or developmental disabilities. These efforts have resulted in a long-term care service delivery structure that is being phased-in statewide. This reformed long-term care structure offers program choices for Medicaid-eligible individuals, including managed care programs (Family Care, Family Care Partnership, PACE) and IRIS (Include, Respect, I Self-Direct), a self-directed long-term support program. The structure also includes Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRCs) to provide long-term care information and assistance to all state citizens in order to support program choice counseling, complete initial functional eligibility screening, and perform program enrollment.

IRIS was developed as an option to managed long-term care programs to provide additional choices to consumers eligible for publicly funded long-term care. IRIS is a self-directed Medicaid home and community-based services (HCBS) waiver program. Within a monthly budget allocation, IRIS participants use public funds and natural supports to craft support and service plans that meet their self-identified long-term care outcomes, maximize their independence and ultimately help achieve the lives they desire.

Details and requirements are found in the documents referenced below.
