The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released guidance to states and manufacturers regarding participation in value based purchasing (VBP) arrangements. The guidance also encourages states to participate in such arrangements as a means to address, as well as offset, higher cost drug treatments. This guidance has been released through State Release #176 and Manufacturer Release #99, which are available for download by clicking here.
