ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the proposed rule of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services under the provisions of the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 (DRA) concerning the five-year period Medicaid generic drug reimbursement. The DRA covers the modification of the formula for calculating federal upper limits on drug payments to the states from the average whole sale price to 205 percent of the average manufacturers price. Critics express their concerns on the rule stating that brand drugs are not covered by the DRA provision and that health care providers may possibly increase the cost of branded name drugs.
