Thanks, California! SB17 Will Trigger Massive Speculative Buying, Windfall Pharmacy Profits, and Supply Chain Disruption - Drug Channels

California SB17 - An Analysis

Read the full article:  Drug Channels: Thanks, California! SB17 Will Trigger Massive Speculative Buying, Windfall Pharmacy Profits, and Supply Chain Disruption:

"As I explain in Section 4.6.2. of our new 2017–18 Economic Report on Pharmaceutical Wholesalers and Specialty Distributors, drug wholesalers will benefit very little from the new law’s advance purchasing of inventory.

That’s because inventory profits are eliminated by almost all manufacturer-wholesaler distribution service agreements. Manufacturers typically negotiate agreements that recapture the value of price appreciation on inventory held in wholesalers’ warehouses and on order with the manufacturer. If a manufacturer recaptures the full inventory appreciation value, then a wholesaler does not benefit from buying inventory at the old price and then selling it at the new, higher price."

OIG: Enhancements needed to collect overpayments | HME News

Read the full article: OIG: Enhancements needed to collect overpayments | HME News:

"The ZPICs and PSCs send the highest number of referrals for Part B (60%) and DME (26%). They sent the highest dollar amount of referrals, however, for home health and hospice (43%), the OIG found.

In its defense, the MACs say collecting overpayments is problematic if: the provider is no longer in business, filed for bankruptcy or was revoked from participating in Medicare."
