ABSTRACT
The article discusses the update on pharmaceutical reimbursement and implications for health-system pharmacists of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) rules and rates in the U.S. Changes are said to be the result of concerns about the future sustainability of financing to cover a growing population of beneficiaries with increasing health care expenses. Moreover, a Medicare economic index has been proposed, which would limit the growth rate and cost $250 billion to implement.
