Data source

The New York State Board of Pharmacy publishes an annual list of the 150 most frequently prescribed drugs. The New York State Department of Health collects retail price information on these drugs from pharmacies that participate in the Medicaid program and from pharmacies that submit their retail price information directly to the Department of Health. The NYDOH does not verify these prices when they are reported. Prices have been reported between 2011 and 2013.
