The Mission of the Summit is to address solutions for:
1. The interpretation of the Final Rule as best we know it
2. The larger implications of health care reform and its financial and operational impact on the expansion of the Medicaid Drug Rebates program
3. A resolution to disputes and how to foster relationships between drug manufacturers and state agencies to better serve the Medicaid population
