This NHIA member resource page provides helpful reference, information, and tools related to the January 1, 2017, implementation of Average Sales Price (ASP) reimbursement that was included as part of the 21st Century Cures Act. It is a starting point to considering the coverage and payment issues for home infusion therapy under the new payment system. Here you will also find the tools to assist you in rallying behind the effort to close the gap between ASP reimbursement and Part B Durable Medical Equipment (DME) Coverage of home infusion services while also working to attain a services and supplies payment for Part D infusion drugs.
NHIA has created a reference tool that compares current Average Wholesale Price (AWP)-based coverage to ASP-based coverage. NHIA members can find the spreadsheet analysis here on the Association’s website.
