340B Billing Policy Implementation Delay
The Mississippi Division of Medicaid (DOM) is further delaying 340B billing policy implementation pending Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) approval of State Plan Amendment (SPA) 17-0002. DOM will notify providers of the implementation date following CMS approval.
Providers should continue preparing for implementation. DOM plans to host an informational stakeholder call in the coming weeks.
As a reminder, 340B Covered Entities are required to complete a 340B Attestation Form for each unique HRSA-issued 340B identification number that has chosen to opt-in (bill Medicaid for 340B purchased drugs).
