VA Drug Pricing Database

Metadata Updated: July 2, 2019

The VA Drug Pricing database contains the current prices for pharmaceuticals purchased by the federal government. These listed prices are based on the Federal Supply Schedule (FSS). This database is mandated by Public Law 102-585, the Veterans Health Care Act of 1992, which sets the maximum amount that a drug may be bought for by the Veterans Health Administration (VHA). The source of this information is contained in printed contracts or data files supplied by the drug manufacturers, representing the pricing agreements between VHA and the manufacturers. Price data is input by the National Acquisition Center (NAC) into the database administered by the Pharmacy Benefits Management Strategic Health Care Group. Information from this database is published on the World Wide Web at the following site: http://www.pbm.va.gov. The users of this database include pharmaceutical manufacturers, drug wholesalers, Office of Inspector General (OIG) and those who purchase pharmaceuticals for the VHA and other government agencies.
