(from left at background) Nita Bradford (cq) and Barbara Boner (cq) listen to (foreground) Cathy Traugott (cq), a member of the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing, as the Medical Services Board listens to her testimony at a meeting on Friday, September 14, 2007. The Medical Services Board, the rule-making authority for the Department of Health Care Policy and Financing, will consider a rule that will set the framework within which the Medicaid preferred drug list (PDL) will be established. Governor Ritter instructed the Dept. to create a PDL in a January executive order. Advocates for the mentally ill and the developmentally disabled have been trying to get the Department to follow the lead of most other states with PDL's by exempting psychiatric medications from restrictions, but the Department is resisting. Their proposed rule allows the executive director to exempt drugs, if she feels like it, but does not require that exemption.
