California health centers say they will continue to fight against the transfer of state Medicaid managed care drug coverage to Medicaid fee for service, despite being denied a temporary restraining order against the change.

Judge Denies Calif. 340B Health Centers’ Motion to Halt State Medicaid Drug Payment Change

A federal judge in Sacramento, Calif., late yesterday declined to stop California Medicaid’s transfer of managed care drug coverage to Medicaid fee for service that took effect on Jan. 1. Health centers enrolled in the 340B drug pricing program pledged to keep fighting the change, which they say will deprive them of millions of dollars of drug reimbursement revenue they desperately need.

U.S. District Judge John Mendezdenied the request for a temporary restraining order by the Community Health Center Alliance for Patient Access (CHCAPA) and its affiliated clinics in a brief opinion. CHCAPA represents 31 federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) providing care to 2.1 million low-income Californians.
