New pharmacy benefit for diabetic supplies at Columbia Pacific CCO Medicaid (OHP)

Jul 6, 2022, 07:00 AM

Effective June 1, 2022, Columbia Pacific CCO allows members to get diabetic supplies such as alcohol wipes, insulin syringes/needles, and pen needles at pharmacies, in addition to DME vendors. 

Testing supplies will also be available, with some restrictions. Columbia Pacific CCO’s pharmacy benefit will exclusively cover OneTouch manufacturer products. When used within quantity limits, these products do not require prior authorization. The FreeStyle Libre 2 will be our covered continuous glucose monitor (CGM), and it requires clinical prior authorization. 

Important note: DME vendor access remains the same. Pharmacy use is not required.
