April 17, 2017 Conduent Incorporated (CNDT) an industry leading business process services company,  announced its Pharmacy Benefit Management (PBM) module, Conduent™ Flexible Rx System, has received federal certification in the state of Montana. This is the first instance of federal certification for Flexible Rx and the first time that certification has been granted to an individual Medicaid management module.

Flexible Rx is a comprehensive Pharmacy Benefit Management system, built on a web-based platform. It was designed to help states improve care while controlling costs. Its agile design can easily plug into modular frameworks or work in conjunction with existing legacy platforms. Flexible Rx enables states to quickly adapt to changes in federal regulations and updates to state policy.

 

The system provides:

 

Pharmacy Claims Processing: Flexible Rx streamlines the claims adjudication process through the electronic submission, transmission, and payment of prescription information for Medicaid, federal and commercial clients.

Prospective Drug Utilization Review (ProDUR): To promote positive outcomes, Flexible Rx evaluates claims against comprehensive ProDUR edits (including drug-drug interactions, therapeutic duplication, and incorrect dosage) which promotes prescribing compliance with evidence-based criteria. Our solution instantly alerts providers to potentially adverse interactions, ensuring members receive the safest and most cost-effective therapies.

Automated Prior Authorization processing: Combined with the Conduent™ SmartPA Pharmacy Application, Flexible Rx automates up to 90 percent of claims requiring prior authorization. This expedites medication dispensing and reduces the administrative burden on providers while reducing costs.

In 2016, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) developed a process for vendors to obtain modular certification. The certification was granted based on a complete virtual review of the systems capabilities – a first for CMS – and the latest federal checklists for modular solutions in the Medicaid Enterprise Certification Toolkit.

 

“CMS’ certification of Flexible Rx provides validation that a modular approach to these systems can work,” said David Hamilton, general manager, Government Healthcare Solutions, Conduent. “As a precedent, the certification will enable us to speed the process in other states.”
