ABSTRACT
The article reports that several U.S. states have already started to take action to prevent the impact of Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' final rule for implementation of average manufacturer price (AMP) for Medicaid reimbursement on generic drugs which is expected to take effect on July 1, 2007. Budgets have already passed by Kansas and Iowa with provisions aimed at directing the AMP savings back to pharmacies. Michigan, Minnesota, Texas and Vermont are planning to create bills to boost dispensing fees.
