Government Programs Summit (sponsor)

I am pleased to welcome back IIR as a Drug Channels sponsor for its Government Programs Summit. The event will be held March 7-9, 2011, in Baltimore. IIR is offering Drug Channels readers a 25% discount off the standard registration rate with VIP code XP1651DRUGCH—up to $700 in savings. Thanks, IIR!

As the GP Summit website correctly notes, government program pricing methodologies, calculations, and enforcement actions have changed significantly since the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) was passed in March 2010. Just consider the complexities and controversy surrounding the new definition of Average Manufacturer Price (AMP)! (See Secret AMP Letter Emerges; FUL Delay Likely.) Even before the Act's passage, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) was projecting that government funds will be almost half of outpatient retail prescription spending by 2019. See CMS' New Drug Spending Projections for my analysis of the most recent forecast.

The risks are increasing, know the rules.

  • $4.05 Billion Dollars have been paid by pharmaceutical manufactures in recent drug pricing settlements
  • Individuals are being investigated for Medicaid false claims by the DOJ
  • Entire companies can face exclusion from Medicaid and 340B
  • OPA has begin rule making for 340B Fines and Overcharges
These are some of the examples of how and why it is imperative to stay compliant while working in Government Programs. So much is changing with each program after healthcare reform passed, it seems impossible to stay abreast of the changes to ensure compliance.

The GP Summit is the one place you will find the answers. We deliver the government officials who will provide the policy answers you are looking for. View the Agenda.
