TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The Florida Pharmacy Association, together with a group of Medicaid patients, independent pharmacies and pharmacists from all over Florida, filed a lawsuit Thursday in Leon County Circuit Court against the Agency for Health Care Administration to seek to restore patient access to qualified Medicaid pharmacy providers.
The lawsuit seeks to stop the Agency from continuing to enter and enforce contracts with for-profit Health Management Organizations and other for-profit managed care organizations that have forced Medicaid patients, according to the complaint, "to use only out-of-state pharmacy conglomerates and their affiliated mandatory mail-order pharmacies."
