Pharmacy point of sale replacement project

The Health Care Authority (HCA) is beginning its journey of modularizing its Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) with the replacement of the first module - the Pharmacy Point of Sale (POS) system. The Pharmacy POS replacement project will replace our current system with a new POS solution that offers the latest functionality, features, and technologies to better meet the needs of Washington’s 2.1 million Apple Health (Medicaid) recipients.

Project overview

The current Pharmacy POS system encompasses the automated functions necessary to receive and adjudicate all pharmacy Fee-for-Service (FFS) claims, Managed Care Organization encounters and process drug rebate invoicing. The future solution will build on these features and include a cloud- hosted architecture that is flexible and scalable to meet future Washington State business needs and federal requirements. Additional features include a secure web portal for drug labelers to retrieve quarterly invoices and claim level detail, more robust prior authorization workflow processes for state staff and rules-engine driven functionality to assist with easy Washington program updates.  More details will be forthcoming. 

The current projected go-live date is mid-December 2022.
