About NYSMPEP

What is NYSMPEP?

The New York State Medicaid Prescriber Education Program (NYSMPEP) is a partnership between the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and the State University of New York (SUNY). NYSMPEP, formed in response to legislation in April 2008, educates prescribers on evidence-based, non-commercial pharmacotherapy information.

What is the Goal of the Program?

The goal of the program is to optimize the quality of care for NYS Medicaid members by providing prescribers the most current information on best practices in pharmaceuticals and therapeutics.

How Does the NYSMPEP Program Work?

NYSMPEP educational materials are delivered by skilled content experts via live or enduring webinars. Our enduring programs are recorded continuing education sessions that are available to complete any day and time.

Educational programs award prescribers with Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) PRA Category 1 credit. Educational modules incorporate disease management information including best practices for selected disease states and conditions.
