Specifications include, but are not limited to:The State of Mississippi, Office of the Governor, Division of Medicaid (DOM), requests proposals from qualified firms, to provide assistance with the design and development of a reimbursement methodology rate structure for all outpatient drugs as defined in 42 U.S.C. 1396r8, maintenance and administration of the rate structure, as necessary, and related analysis and consulting services. DOM is interested in considering all options available to the State. The goal of the program is to determine the appropriate ingredient cost of product(s) to use as a basis for pharmacy reimbursement. Section 1902(a)(30)(A) of the Social Security Act requires that States "assure that payments are consistent with efficiency, economy and quality of care and are sufficient to enlist enough providers so that care and services are available under the plan at least to the extent that such care and services are available to the general population in the geographic area." At this time, DOM uses Estimated Acquisition Cost methodology (EAC) which uses a variety of pricing parameters: Average Wholesale Price (AWP), Federal Upper Limit (FUL), usual and customary and Wholesale Acquisition Costs (WAC). DOM will be responsible for complying with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) FUL and intends to use the national published benchmark, National Average Drug Acquisition Cost (NADAC)
