Pharmacy Services

The Pharmacy Services program of the Department of Human Services (DHS, "the Department") oversees the outpatient prescription drug benefit for all Pennsylvania Medical Assistance (MA)-eligible beneficiaries and administers the pharmacy benefit for beneficiaries receiving services in the Fee-for-Service (FFS) program (i.e., ACCESS). The FFS pharmacy benefit encompasses all covered outpatient drugs as defined by the Social Security Act of 1927.

The pages linked below contain helpful information for providers and pharmacies rendering services in the FFS delivery system. Information regarding services administered in the Pennsylvania MA managed care delivery system is available from the specific managed care organizations.
