2.15.2019 Supplemental Data When pharmacy data are classified as supplemental data, the following data elements must be present: the generic name (or brand name), strength/dose, route and date when the medication was dispensed to the member. If all the required data elements are included except the dispense date, can a start date be used instead?

No. When pharmacy data are used as supplemental data, a dispense date is required; a start date may not be used as a proxy. There are no exceptions to the requirements for pharmacy data, as described in General Guideline 30.
