Daily Rules, Proposed Rules, and Notices of the Federal Government
In compliance with Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the
Title 10, United States Code (U.S.C.) 1074g(f) makes drugs provided to eligible covered beneficiaries through the TRICARE Retail Pharmacy Program subject to the pricing standards of the Veterans Health Care Act. Under the authority of 10 U.S.C. 1074g(h), Title 32, Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) 199.21(q)(3) requires information collection to implement 10 U.S.C. 1074g(f). Specifically, under the collection of information, respondents (drug manufacturers) will base refund calculation reporting requirements on both the Federal Ceiling Price and the Federal Supply Schedule Price, whichever is lower. Previously, drug manufacturers' reporting requirements addressed only the Federal Ceiling Price. The DoD will use the reporting and audit capabilities of the Pharmacy Data Transaction Service (PDTS) to validate refunds owed to the Government.
