Drug Topics - States invoke emergency rules to cut Medicaid rates

"That could pose significant harm to us," said Mike Mayes, KPA's executive director, "and it could harm Medicaid recipients by reducing the availability of pharmacists able to fill their prescriptions."

Under the January rule change, the governor can impose the lower Medicaid reimbursements at his discretion, and the change would be in effect for 170 days, whereupon the state legislature has to act to maintain the change.But if the governor does not soon lower the reimbursement,as many observers, including Mayes, believe is possible,the legislature will have adjourned before the 170 days are up and won't take the matter up until January 2006, when it reconvenes and when reimbursements are scheduled to fall to AWP minus 17% under the emergency rules."It's an end run," said Mayes, "but we have to wait and see what the governor's going to do."

Kentucky has about 300 pharmacy vacancies right now , according to Mike Mayes , executive director of the Kentucky Pharmacy Association.

Every year we have about 125 pharmacists who leave the profession here either because of retirement , relocation or death , Mayes said.University of Kentucky is the only school in the state that has a pharmacy program.They only graduated 77 people last fall , so you can see the problem..
The shortages extend across the country.
A national Department of Health and Human Services 2000 study showed the number of unfilled drug store pharmacist positions rose from 2 , 700 to 7 , 000 during the past two years.
Mayes said any program that works to alleviate such shortages should be commended.
