Medication Sourcing Expansion Delayed Due to COVID-19
We are delaying the specialty pharmacy requirement that requires hospitals to obtain specialty medications from indicated specialty pharmacies. This requirement will not take place for commercial plans or UnitedHealthcare Community Plans on April 1, 2020, as previously communicated. We will inform you through the Network Bulletin when a new effective date is known.
