OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION FROM IIR

We know there is more red-lining to be completed, but we need to start preparing now for the changes that are ahead. The impact on our industry is significant, including the definition of Average Manufacturer Price (AMP), raising the base Medicaid rebate percentage, expanding eligibility and changing the 340B program, not to mention effective date 1/1/10.

MDRP summit provides a full day dedicated to understanding how Healthcare Reform Legislation will impact your processes, compliance, and your bottom line.
