Description
Government Accountability Integrity Reliability Office Collection

Excerpt
Excerpt: Using cost data obtained from 12 inhalation therapy suppliers that accounted for more than 42 percent of 2003 Medicare inhalation therapy payments, GAO found that 2003 acquisition costs for the three inhalation therapy drugs representing approximately 98 percent of Medicare inhalation therapy drug expenditures varied widely. For example, per unit acquisition costs for ipratropium bromide, the inhalation therapy drug with the highest Medicare expenditures, ranged from $0.23 to $0.64. Although costs varied, they were not always lower for the 4 largest suppliers. The lowest acquisition cost for ipratropium bromide was obtained by one of the small suppliers, and the highest by one of the large suppliers. GAO estimated that the 2003 Medicare payment rate per patient, per month was between $119 to $129 higher than suppliers? acquisition costs for a typical monthly supply of albuterol sulfate and between $162 to $187 higher for a typical monthly supply of ipratropium bromide.
