RED BOOK(TM) Delivers AWP to Support CMS Pricing for Workers' Compensation Medicare Set-Aside Arrangement Proposals

ANN ARBOR, Mich., June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently announced that, effective June 1, it will independently price prescription drug costs in Workers' Compensation Medicare Set-Aside Arrangement (WCMSA) proposals. When an injury covered by workers' compensation warrants prescription drugs for ongoing treatment, CMS' pricing will be calculated using average wholesale price (AWP). CMS will not use or recognize any other pricing, discounting, or calculation methods.

Thomson Reuters offers AWP through its RED BOOK to support determination of pricing for prescription drugs for treatment of injuries in workers' compensation cases. The RED BOOK policy and methodology for AWP have been consistent for over six years, providing a trusted source to support CMS pricing for WCMSA proposals.

RED BOOK covers current drug pricing and product information in a single source that is continuously updated to reflect recent price changes and new product information. Obtaining pricing and product information from one comprehensive source reduces the need to conduct redundant searches and simplifies identification, analysis, and comparison of drug and non-drug products. Available through multiple delivery options, including flat files for system integration or CD-ROM, RED BOOK helps quickly answer drug-related questions with information on prescription and over-the-counter drugs, nutraceuticals, bulk chemicals, and non-drug items.
