Reference Based Pricing Using Offshore Pricing for High Cost Drugs


PPACA does not mandate where a service or covered product is to be purchased.  If you can get a full course of treatment for Sovaldi for $900 in Brazil versus $33,600 per month in the United State, it may make sense to export the patient as opposed to importing the drug.  Sitting on a beach in Brazil with an umbrella drink in between treatments sounds appealing.
