ABSTRACT
The article discusses on the revised regulation by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for calculating the average manufacturer price (AMP) for medicine purchased by Medicaid programs in the U.S. According to reports, by setting lower and realistic reimbursement rates for Medicaid drugs, the new policy is expected to save state governments more than $8 billion over five years. It also proposes to include the rates that pharmaceutical offer mail-order and specialty pharmacies.
