RE: Pharmaceutical Reimbursement


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.
