The Medicaid Drug Rebate Program (MDRP) Summit, created and developed by the Institute for International Research, has been at the forefront of policy changes and operational compliance, bringing a unique mix of contracting and pricing specialists together with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), Department of Justice (DOJ), and Office of Inspector General (OIG) leadership.

There also will be dispute resolution meetings facilitated by the CMS and much, much more.
