Why prescription drugs costs so much - Business Insider

Read the full article with illustrations: Why prescription drugs costs so much - Business Insider:

"Don’t just blame drug companies for rising prescription prices. For all the outrage over Mylan increasing EpiPen prices by 500%, and insulin prices, which are up 300% over the past decade, drug prices are a lot more complicated than pointing the finger at a lone villain.

For a single prescription drug, there are often five companies involved, from development all the way to your medicine cabinet. Each company makes a tidy profit along the way. And as prices increase, so do those profits."

Medicare Cuts Will Disproportionately Harm COPD Patients - Morning Consult

Read the full article: Medicare Cuts Will Disproportionately Harm COPD Patients - Morning Consult:

"CMS has chosen to deeply reduce Medicare payments for the home oxygen services required to keep COPD patients healthy and out of the hospital and other costly facilities.  On January 1, CMS began applying the competitive bid rates used in urban areas to rural and other non-competitive bid areas.  This policy is being phased-in over only a 6-month period, taking full effect on July 1 and resulting in a 30-50 percent cut to home respiratory therapy. Additionally, another set of cuts of approximately 18 percent was just applied on July 1."

The Race for Track & Trace: Are 3PLs ready for serialization? | Air Cargo World

Read the full article: The Race for Track & Trace: Are 3PLs ready for serialization? | Air Cargo World:

. . ."Phase II, which goes into effect beginning in November 2017, requires item-level serialization and poses a real challenge for 3PLs.

Brian Daleiden, vice president of industry marketing at TraceLink, a cloud-based track-and-trace network, warned that many 3PLs are only starting to realize the potential issues and complications they face. “If you’re a pharmaceutical company supplying products covered under DSCSA, working with 3PLs, and you are not today having any active conversations about what your plans and expectations are, you are creating serious risk for your ability to supply products and meet the serialization deadlines,” he said. “Not to say compliance cannot be reached, but you should be having the conversation today.”"

"Report findings show that more than 40% of the 146 suppliers examined did not meet licensure requirements and were incorrectly awarded contracts by CMS due to database inaccuracies. An additional 14 of the examined suppliers still require further research by CMS to determine whether they have met the necessary licensure requirements. These database deficiencies and inaccuracies were attributed to complex variations in state licensure requirements and the challenges that CMS has faced in maintaining a current and accurate database."

California and the Future of the US Rx Pricing | Pharmaceutical Executive

Read the full article: California and the Future of the US Rx Pricing | Pharmaceutical Executive:

"First of all, what does the California proposition mandate?

 “The California Drug Price Relief Act” states that any prescription drug obtained by the State of California shall be purchased at the same “fixed price” that is accorded to the U.S. Veterans Administration, i.e., at about a 42% of average wholesale price. This is a really low price that is accorded to the VA as gesture of drug industry support for the armed services. It was never meant to be a market price point, but that is exactly what may happen if this California initiative passes on Nov. 8th."

Self-Assessment Forms - Use The 2014 Versions - CA St Board of Rx

The California Board of Pharmacy announced*:

"Board regulations (Title 16 California Code of Regulations sections 1715 and 1784), require that all licensed pharmacies and wholesalers complete a Self-Assessment by July 1 of every odd-numbered year.

The board recently updated the Self-Assessment forms through a formal rulemaking. The updated forms contain references to statutory and regulatory changes that occurred between 2011 and 2014 (inclusive).

While the rulemaking process was underway, the board accepted from pharmacies, hospital pharmacies and wholesalers completion of either the 2011 version OR the draft 2014 version: both versions have been available for use on the board’s website.

On April 20, 2016, the Office of Administrative Law approved the revised self-assessment forms. These forms can be downloaded at: http://www.pharmacy.ca.gov/licensees/facility/self_assess.shtml  They will all have “(Rev. 10/14)” date on them in in the lower left corner of the pages.

Form 17M-13: “Community Pharmacy Self-Assessment/Hospital Outpatient Pharmacy Self‐Assessment (Rev. 10/14)”
Form 17M-14: “Hospital Pharmacy Self‐Assessment (Rev. 10/14)”
Form 17M-26: Form 17M-26: “Wholesaler Dangerous Drugs & Devices Self-Assessment (Rev. 10/14).”

The board encourages all pharmacies, hospital pharmacies and wholesalers to complete the revised forms if they have not already completed the 2014 assessments. The board will no longer accept the 2011 versions of the self-assessment forms as [compliant]."
