This policy applies to Otsuka America Pharmaceutical, Inc. (OAPI) products purchased directly from OAPI. Only product purchased either directly from OAPI or from an OAPI-authorized distributor will be eligible for return. All products returned, whether eligible for credit or not, become the property of OAPI. A returned goods authorization (RGA) number must be obtained to return all OAPI products. Return authorizations expire sixty (60) days from the issue date. Products, including expired goods, returned without authorization will not be accepted for credit.

Returning Procedure 

Basis for Credit Reimbursement

    1. the highest lot acquisition cost (i.e., lot list price net of any prompt pay or other discounts); or
    2. any applicable contract price.
  • For ABILIFY®,1 tablets, credit for returned product will be issued at current acquisition cost (where applicable, current contract price) as of the date the returned product is received at the designated return goods processor, less ten percent (10%).
  • For opened packages of expired product otherwise eligible for reimbursement, the reimbursement value will be based upon exact count and not to exceed the original quantity on the label. Products that are packaged as vials must be returned in original, sealed, unopened containers; vials will not receive partial credit. Any credit issued by OAPI pursuant to this policy will be issued to authorized distributors of record (ADR), such as wholesalers, distributors, and other direct accounts. Indirect customers, such as retail and hospital pharmacies, will be issued credit memos through their ADR for eligible returned products. Indirect customers must also list their ADR information on the RGA.

  • Product obtained illegally or via diverted means or acquired for the purpose of returning to OAPI for credit.
