Brand-Name Prescription Drug Reimbursement Reform

Wisconsin’s Medicaid program, beginning October 1, 2011 will convert from the use of Average Wholesale Price (AWP) to the use of Wholesale Acquisition Cost (WAC) as the pricing benchmark for reimbursing pharmacies for brand-name drugs. The Department does not change the current $3.44 dispensing fee paid for each brand-name drug.
