Prescription Drugs Introduced to Market

OSHPD presents information on new prescription drugs introduced to market in California with a Wholesale Acquisition Cost (WAC) that exceeds the Medicare Part D specialty drug cost threshold. Prescription drug manufacturers submit information to OSHPD within a specified time period after a drug is introduced to market. Information includes: the National Drug Code (NDC) administered by the FDA, a narrative description of marketing and pricing plans, and WAC, among other information. Manufacturers may withhold information that is not in the public domain. The table represents the new drug reports submitted by manufacturers.

DATA NOTES: Due to recent changes in Excel capabilities, it is not recommended that you save these files to .csv format. If you do, when importing back into Excel the leading zeros in the NDC number column will be dropped. If you need to save it into a different format other than .xlsx it must be .txt
