CMS addresses duplicate discounts, state Medicaid rebate requests
from xtelligent Healthcare Media
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid has issued guidance that will help states avoid pursuing a duplicate discount from manufacturers when submitting state Medicaid rebate requests. Manufacturers are not required to both provide a "340B price" and pay the state a rebate under the Medicaid drug rebate program for the same drug, the bulletin explains. Nevertheless, this remains a problem. The process is complex and there are multiple ways that states incorrectly request rebates.
