Question:

What is the 2019 average sales price (ASP) rate for nonpass-through drugs and biologicals?

Answer:

For 2019, payment for nonpass-through drugs and biologicals that were not acquired through the 340B Program is made at a single rate of ASP + 6 percent (or ASP – 22.5 percent if acquired under the 340B Program), which provides payment for both the acquisition cost and pharmacy overhead costs associated with the drug or biological.
