& McKesson Shareholders:
Supply Issues on Atorvastatin;
Price Increase Possible Today
Rumors of price increases on atorvastatin have been circulating for months. We have new information that a price increase may occur today.
Both AmerisourceBergen and McKesson have inventory available, but are allocating quantities on some SKUs. We recommend purchasing what you can of atorvastatin today.
On average, it takes more than 37 days for MACs to be adjusted when there is a generic increase, and often can take longer in many cases. In order to protect your margin, we recommend that you purchase enough inventory to carry you through this period of lagging reimbursement.
