Albuterol Shortage Prompts Temporary Change in Preferred Status

On March 21, VDP temporarily changed the preferred drug list to address reported drug shortages for short-acting agents in the bronchodilators, beta agonist drug class. This change allows providers to prescribe these drugs without requiring a non-preferred prior authorization and allow people on Medicaid continued access to necessary medication. VDP will continue to update providers on the status these drugs. Additional information can be found here.
