Kaiser Pemanente Adds Acthar (QCOR)

|Includes: Mallinckrodt PLC (MNK)

In an move that caught shorts off guard, news was posted that Kaiser Permanente established coverage of Questcor's (QCOR) flagship product Acthar.

Kaiser of Georgia is the first to release new 2013 reimbursement coverage documentation. It does, of course, include the need for pre-authorization as all high tier level drugs do.

Will we see more soon, as other regional Kaiser entities publish their new formularies?

Here is the link to their new 2013 formulary.
