Pharmacy Maximum Allowable Cost Program Information
The Pharmacy Maximum Allowable Cost (MAC) Program was added April 1, 2003 to the Medicaid program claims processing system for pharmacy services. This program assigns an upper payment limit to generically available multi-source drugs for which a federal upper limit (FUL) has not been set by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The state MAC provides a bridge between the time a generic alternative is available and when CMS applies an FUL to the product.
