DIR-fees-bin-610097 (1).png

We have several reports from our member pharmacies that the PBM with BIN 610097 is rolling out a new DIR fee program tied entirely to Hypertension (RASA - Renin Angiotensin System Antagonists) adherence.

These new DIR fees are effectively a hybrid of two popular DIR formats: a retroactive flat DIR, only later “refunded” if certain performance measurements are obtained.

Here is a brief breakdown of these pharmacy star ratings:

-The PBM withholds a fee of $8.75 for every Medicare prescription at remittance

-Then, RASA adherence is calculated on a PSAO level

-Then, the PBM refunds pharmacies between $0-8.75 based on hypertension adherence performance
