Variable fee schedule aligns provider interests with payers by encouraging lower cost, but equally effective agents through proprietary Maximum Allowable Cost (MAC) and Least Cost Alternative (LCA) pricing strategies for drugs administered in the physician office, home infusion, and hospital outpatient facilities. In addition, we manage unclassified codes with an NDC pricing tool.
