As of version 5.0.1 (5-Apr-2016), this table is no longer part of the OMOP CDM. It is replaced by the COST table.
For prior definition, see below.
The DRUG_COST table captures records containing the cost of a Drug Exposure. The information about the cost is defined by the amount of money paid by the Person and Payer for the Drug, as well as the charged cost of the Drug. In addition, a reference to the health plan information in the PAYER_PLAN_PERIOD table is stored in the record that is responsible for the determination of the cost as well as some of the Payments.
