On January 1, 2021, the state Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) will change how your Medi- Cal pharmacy benefit is managed. It will be called Medi-Cal Rx. Pharmacy services and support will be provided by Magellan Medicaid Administration, Inc. This change applies to you if you currently receive your prescriptions through Gold Coast Health Plan (GCHP). For most people, nothing will change. But for some of you, your doctor will need to fill out a form to get approval when you renew your prescriptions. Your doctor may need to talk to you about changing your medications. If you have both Medicare and Medi-Cal, the switch will not change your current Medicare Part D pharmacy coverage. Medi-Cal Rx may cover things Medicare does not. You should talk to your doctor or pharmacy if you have questions. Most pharmacies in the state will be part of the new system but some will not be. If you need a new pharmacy, you can talk to your doctor about your options. You can also use the Medi-Cal Rx website, medi-calrx.dhcs.ca.gov , to find one.
