Compounded Drugs: TRICAREńˇ╗s Payment Practices Should Be More Consistent with Regulations
John E. Dicken (au)
The Department of Defense (DOD) offers comprehensive health care coverage -- pharmacy and medical benefits -- to eligible beneficiaries through its TRICARE program. As part of its benefits package, TRICARE pays for compounded drugs. Traditionally, a drug is compounded through the process of mixing, combining, or altering ingredients, to create a customized drug tailored to the medical needs of an individual patient upon receipt of a prescription. Concerns exist about the safety and the rising costs of compounded drugs. This report reviewed TRICARE's payment for compounded drugs. It examined (1) the number and cost of compounded drugs paid for by TRICARE in FY 2013; and (2) TRICARE's payment practices for compounded drugs and how they compare to other federal health care programs. Table and figures. This is a print on demand report.
