Mathematica supports product management for the system the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) uses to administer the Medicaid Drug Rebate Program (MDRP) as well as the Medicaid Drug Utilization Review (DUR) survey and reporting process.
The MDRP offsets Federal and state costs of outpatient prescription drugs dispensed to the Medicaid population. The Medicaid Drug Programs system (MDP) calculates rebate amounts that drug manufacturers and labelers owe to state Medicaid agencies that cover their outpatient prescription drugs. Under the Medicaid DUR Program, state Medicaid agencies implement programming to reduce abuse and misuse of Medicaid-covered outpatient prescription drugs. The DUR module of MDP allows CMS to collect information about DUR policies and programs state Medicaid agencies have in place, on an annual basis. CMS shares the information collected with various stakeholders, so they can understand trends and recommend policy interventions.
