Therapeutic Alternative Reference Pricing (TARP)
On September 1, 2016, ASEBP introduced therapeutic alternative reference pricing (TARP) for four therapeutic classes:
- inflammation/pain management
- high blood pressure
- stomach hyperacidity
TARP allows benefit plans to offer equally safe and effective alternatives for medications treating specific health conditions while managing pharmaceutical costs. For more information around coverage for specific prescription medications, use the Drug Inquiry Tool on My ASEBP
under the “Coverage” tab.
