As you may be aware, MediSpan, the company that has been designated in the Connecticut Practitioner Fee Schedule to provide updated pricing for pharmaceutical needs, has been sold to a new company. Because updated pricing information is not available and a basis to determine the Average Wholesale Price is needed, we will now utilize the current edition of Drug Topics® Red Book® commencing immediately to help identify whatever prescription pricing might be necessary. To order a copy of the Red Book, please call (800) 678-5689 or fax (515) 284-6714. For electronic pricing, please call (800) 722-3062.
