Medicare Program; Contract Year 2019 Policy and Technical Changes Final Rule
Apr 23, 2018
CMS decided to “kick the can down the road” on DIR fees at this time, but noted that the President’s Fiscal Year 2019 Budget included language that all price concessions should be at the point-of-sale. CMS believes the statute provides them with discretion to require that Part D sponsors apply at least a portion of the manufacturer rebates and all pharmacy price concessions they receive to the price of a Part D drug at the point of sale. Any new requirements regarding the application of rebates at the point of sale will be proposed through notice and comment in future rulemaking.
Reminder - CMS Proposed DIR Rule Comments Due January 16
Jan 12, 2018
As a reminder to all IPC stores, you have until the close of business Tuesday, January 16, 2018 to submit your comments to The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) supporting its proposed rule that ends the retroactive DIR fees by requiring the PBMs to apply all pharmacy price concessions, including DIR fees, to the price of the drug at the point of sale.
