Albuterol Shortage Prompts Change in Preferred Status

Albuterol Shortage Prompts Change in Preferred Status

On March 21, VDP changed the preferred drug list status of certain Albuterol products from non-preferred to preferred. This is a temporary change to address reported drug shortages for short-acting agents in the bronchodilators, beta agonist drug class. The full list of drugs is available on the VDP website.

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.
