Average Acquisition Cost (AAC) Price List

Update: Effective February 1, 2014, the Department is no longer applying a percent adjustment to AAC reimbursement rates for rural pharmacies per Department regulation 8.800.13 Pharmacy Reimbursement Calculation.  Rural pharmacies are now reimbursed AAC, excluding any adjustments.  With rural and non-rural pharmacies reimbursed the same AAC rates, the Department is now only publishing one AAC price list every week.      

 
  • The AAC Price list is updated weekly to account for changing market prices.
  • The date listed in the name of the AAC Price List is its effective date. 
  • A price list is effective until another list is published by the Department the following week. 
  • Drugs that have experienced a price change will be highlighted.

Note: The report only includes current AAC rates. If a drug is not listed in an AAC Price List, the drug will be reimbursed using Wholesale Acquisition Cost (WAC). A pharmacy should contact their current vendor to inquire about a WAC price.  If a pharmacy believes that an AAC rate does not accurately reflect the cost of a drug, the pharmacy should complete the AAC Inquiry Worksheet.
