MHLA Community Partner Connection Newsletter
Happy Summer! We recently saw a flurry of agencies submitting last-minute requests for new clinic sites. We will work on processing those and adding them to your contracts and scheduling pre-site audits if necessary. Thank you to everyone who submitted them in a timely manner. Please see below for some additional upcoming deadlines for the program:
- 6/30: MHLA Audit team annual program monitoring ends.
- 07/27: Last MHLA Enrollment and Eligibility Webinar.
- 07/31: Second Participant letter goes out.
- 08/15: Last day for MHLA pharmacy formulary additions.
We also appreciate everyone signing their contract amendments. We will continue to provide everyone with updates related to the sunsetting and please let us know if you have any questions.
We hope everyone has a safe 4th of July!
