& McKesson Shareholders:
Mupirocin 2% Ointment Doubles in Price
Teva has initiated a 200% price increase on Mupirocin 2% ointment. Perrigo is still available from Amerisource-Bergen and McKesson at the lower price. We recommend purchasing extra inventory as soon as possible.
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.
