Information to Help Your Practice

  • 14-Hydroxyprogesterone
    Idaho Medicaid will pay the physician office or clinic for either the commercially available drug (Makena) or for the compounded agent. We do have prior authorization criteria, which follows the product labeling but Medicaid allows the provider to choose which formulation they administer. The key is that it is defined as a physician administered drug so is considered a medical benefit and doesn’t go through the Medicaid pharmacy system. The physician buys the drug and bills as a Jcode and the physician receives the reimbursement. I can tell you because offices buy product up front that most use the compounded product. I have heard though that there are some health systems that do not allow their clinics to use the compounded products because of safety and efficacy concerns, but that has not come from us.
