  • Amends title XVIII (Medicare) of the Social Security Act to require determination and calculation of the manufacturer's average sales price for a drug or biological on a monthly instead of a quarterly basis.

Removes prompt pay discounts from the calculation of such price.
  • Provides for an increase in the Medicare part B (Supplementary Medical Insurance) payment for chemotherapy administration services.
  • Directs the Secretary to make an additional 2% for any drug administration services payment to physicians, taking into account pharmacy facilities management costs.
