Q&A: Reporting Other Adjudicated Actions
or Decisions

  1. A health plan determines that a pharmacy had been improperly substituting generic compounds for certain prescribed brand-name drugs and terminates the pharmacy's contract. While reaching its decision, the health plan employed the due process safeguards it had set in place. Is the termination reportable?

    Yes. The action taken by the health plan is a reportable adjudicated action because it was taken against a health care practitioner, provider, or supplier, included the availability of due process, and was related to the delivery of health care items or services.
