Agency Notice
SUMMARY: In this proposed rule, the Department of Health and Human Services (Department or HHS) proposes to amend the safe harbor regulation concerning discounts, which are defined as certain conduct that is protected from liability under the Federal anti-kickback statute, section 1128B(b) of the Social Security Act (the Act). The amendment would revise the discount safe harbor to explicitly exclude from the definition of a discount eligible for safe harbor protection certain reductions in price or other remuneration from a manufacturer of prescription pharmaceutical products to plan sponsors under Medicare Part D, Medicaid managed care organizations as defined under section 1903(m) of the Act (Medicaid MCOs), or pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) under contract with them. In addition, the Department is proposing two new safe harbors. The first would protect certain point-of-sale reductions in price on prescription pharmaceutical products, and the second would protect certain PBM service fees. DATES: To ensure consideration, comments must be delivered to the address provided below by 5 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on April 8, 2019. ADDRESSES: In commenting, please reference file code OIG-0936-P. Because of staff and resource limitations, we cannot accept comments by facsimile (fax) transmission.
