Information for Vermont Prescribers of Prescription Drugs
Notice to Vermont Prescribers
The Vermont “Pharmaceutical Marketer Price Disclosure Law” requires pharmaceutical marketers to disclose to Vermont doctors and other prescribers the prices of drugs they market as well as the prices of other drugs in the same therapeutic class. This information for Celgene Corporation products is provided below.
The prices listed below are Average Wholesale Prices (AWP) as established and made available to the public by a third party publisher, or as calculated from data made available to the public by a third party publisher.
Information about AWP of these drugs is being provided to Vermont prescribers pursuant to Vermont law, to give you information about the relative prices of marketed drugs and other drugs in the same therapeutic class. The price paid by consumers may be higher or lower than the prices listed below.
The prices listed do not necessarily reflect price per dosage, price per course of treatment, or the cost effectiveness of all the products listed. For simplicity, only the smallest package sizes available for each product are included.
The various statements that appear on the disclosure forms are required under the Vermont Attorney General’s Guide to Pharmaceutical Marketer Price Disclosure Law (“AG Guide”). The statements are reproduced by us without alteration.
The “Other Products” identified on the forms are the other products listed in the same class as the marketed product in the 2004 American Hospital Formulary System (“AHFS”) Pharmacologic-Therapeutic Classification system. The AG Guide requires manufacturers to use the AHFS classification system.
The listing of other products in the forms does not imply that such other products are interchangeable with the marketed product or have the same safety or efficacy. Please refer to each product’s FDA-approved label and indication for further information.
