CHA encourages members to participate in an upcoming meeting on the Governor’s Executive Order that would transition pharmacy services from Medi-Cal managed care plans into the fee-for-service delivery system by January 2021 — which will impact hospitals that participate in the 340B Drug Discount Program. The meeting will be held July 24 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. in Sacramento, and is designed to facilitate community awareness and provide a forum for stakeholder feedback.

Under Senate Bill 78 (Chapter 38, Statutes of 2019), the California Department of Health Care Services is required to convene an advisory group to receive feedback on the changes, modifications, and operational time frames for this transition.

Those interested may attend in person or participate by webinar; registration is available online. Questions should be directed to
