UnitedHealthcare Community Plan works with OptumRx to manage the Pharmacy network. Multiple sources are used by OptumRx in order to assure the Maximum Allowable Cost (MAC) list accurately reflects market pricing and availability of generic drugs. Sources include de-identified market pricing, benchmark data including Average Wholesale Price (AWP) and Wholesaler Acquisition Cost (WAC), wholesaler information on market availability, and individual pharmacy feedback.
The synthesis of this information helps create a market based MAC price for generic items included on the MAC list. These sources are monitored and updates are used to help manage the market fluctuations of pricing on the MAC list.
The MAC lists are reviewed on a monthly basis.
