To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to RCW Ch. 42.56 (Public Records Act), I hereby request the following records:

Data use agreements, data extract specifications (e.g., a list of data fields the state provides), and fee schedule / recurring fees paid by any third party data provider (e.g. Symphony Health Solutions, IMS Health / QuintilesIMS, Wolters Kluwer, and/or Data Niche Associates) related to pharmacy claims data used by the state for invoicing drug manufacturers rebates related to any of the following programs: the Medicaid Drug Rebate Program, state pharmaceutical assistance programs (i.e. SPAP), or Aids Drug Assistance Programs (i.e. ADAP).

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Jeremy Docken

Yes, we are requesting data extract requirements documents, if such documents have been provided by the third party data provider to the state. Or, if the third party and the state worked together on a document to define the data extract fields, and documented the results of that conversation.

Kind regards,
Jeremy Docken
