Affordable Care Act Federal Upper Limit Effective Dates

April 11, 2018

Beginning April 2018, the monthly Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act Federal Upper Limit (FUL) pharmacy pricing released by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) are automated. As a result, FUL prices are effective for dates of service on the 1st of each month (rather than the 15th) and will remain in effect until the next CMS FUL release and system update.
