NADAC (National Average Drug Acquisition Cost)

NADAC is the approximate cost of a medication that pharmacies (not patients) pay for a medication in the United States. Cost data is obtained via monthly surveys of community pharmacies. NADAC pricing is considered a more accurate alternative than average wholesale price (AWP). For more information, see NADAC (from Data.Medicaid.gov) or the NADAC data explorer.
