The court hearing for the CPhA lawsuit against the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) is scheduled for August 30th in Oakland, CA. The State recently submitted their reply to the lawsuit and as expected are claiming that "no actual harm has occurred as a result of the clawbacks and new reimbursement rates."
The Attorneys Need Your Help!
CPhA will have one opportunity to submit additional testimony to the court demonstrating the impact of the clawbacks and new lower rates. We must show the court that actual harm has occurred to patients in order to have a chance at winning the injunction. We need your help rounding up declarations from patients have been denied access to specialty medications to prove to the court that the impact is real. We also need declarations from pharmacies who have already stopped providing specialty medications to patients as a result of the new rates and/or clawbacks.
