GAO Report: Payment Practices Vary Across Public Programs and Private Insurers, and Medicare Part B Policy Should Be Clarified
U.S. Government Accountability Office [GAO] Link to more items from this source
Nov. 10, 2014
40 pages. "Medicare, Medicaid, and private health insurers have varying payment practices for compounded drugs, depending upon whether compounded drugs and their ingredients can be identified on health insurance claims, and Medicare's Part B payment policy for these drugs is unclear.... GAO recommends that CMS clarify its Medicare Part B payment policy to either allow or restrict payment for compounded drugs containing bulk drug substances and align payment practices with this policy. HHS disagreed with this recommendation, stating that the Part B payment policy does not depend on drug ingredients. GAO maintains that the policy needs clarification." [GAO-15-85, published Oct. 21, 2014, released Nov. 10, 2014]
