As previously discussed here and over on Health Industry Washington Watch here, this past Thursday, CMS and OMB issued the final, 600+ page Medicaid Rebate Program Final Rule. The pre-Federal Register version of the final rule may be accessed here. While we are still processing what this will mean for drug manufacturers and other health care providers, Reed Smith’s Joe Metro and Jackie Godin are already preparing a full analysis of the final rule, which we will share with you in the future.

In the meantime, this Friday, January 29, at 11:00 am ET, Joe will be participating in a free CBI webinar titled, “Final Medicaid Rebate Rule Review with Huron” in conjunction with representatives of Huron Consulting. The webinar will provide an overview of some of the key provisions of the final rule and highlight potential operational implications, priorities, and timelines.  Registration and additional information about the program can be found here.
