CA DWC Notifies Workers’ Comp Pharmaceutical Providers and Payers of Corrected Weekly Pharmaceutical Fee File


San Francisco, CA ( - The Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) normally posts the weekly updated Medi-Cal pharmaceutical fee data file each Wednesday.  On Wednesday, September 5, 2018, DWC posted the weekly pharmaceutical fee data file received from the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS).  On Thursday, September 6, 2018, DHCS notified DWC that a corrected file had been issued and DWC posted the corrected file to the website and to the FTP server.

While there appear to be relatively few changes to less than 100 out of over 700,000 records,  DWC advises anyone who downloaded the weekly pharmaceutical data file posted on September 5th to download the corrected file from the website, or collect the file from the FTP server.  In addition, anyone who used the online pharmaceutical calculator on September 5 or 6 should run the calculation again to ensure the result received is consistent with the updated file.
