Medicaid Prescription Drug Assistance for Fully Dual Eligible Medicare Part D Clients
OAR 410-121-0149 was an emergency rule adopted in response to difficulties related to the roll-out of Medicare Part D. In January 2006, thousands of Oregonians who were dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid were unable to fill prescriptions because pharmacies could not confirm their Medicare Part D eligibility. OAR 410-121-0149 provided relief by allowing pharmacies to obtain DMAP reimbursement. The issues have since been resolved. This rule is being repealed as it is no longer needed.

DMAP publishes these notices in the Secretary of State's Oregon Bulletin, or major Oregon newspapers, to notify the public about proposed changes to DMAP programs or Oregon's Medicaid State Plan that happen outside DMAP's administrative rules process.
|How do you notify the public of upcoming changes to OHP?|
Any time we want to change what OHP covers or whom OHP serves, DMAP must ask the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to approve the change. Sign up for OHP Public Notices and Meetings to find out when we have sent such a request to CMS.
We send OHP provider announcements to inform affected providers about changes to our fee-for-service payment rates. Sign up for OHP Provider Announcements to get these notifications.
