I would love to get coupon data for analysis. I keep having concerns with the point of sale rebate push. That will make pricing messy.
Yeah, not looking forward to this Medicare bid season if a final rule on rebates isn't released in the next month or two. The Part D direct subsidy is based on the national average bid amount, so not only will we have to guess what the government is going to do on pos rebates, but we have to guess what other carriers are going to guess what the government and other carriers are going to do....
