Level: Intermediate
CE: ACPE 1.00 Knowledge UAN: 0286-0000-19-532-L04-P; CME 1.00; IACET 1.00; RN 1.00

Value-based contracting between payers, providers and manufacturers is an evolving space. Finding approaches that will can both scale and succeed long term have been challenging. The first speaker will describe a set of examples that focus on the payer-pharma relationships. The second two speakers will describe a new approach to using provider clinical outcomes in specialty conditions as the level of measurement.

Learning Objectives

Describe the current state of value-based contracting; Discuss examples of success and failure in value-based contracting; Identify a new approach to using provider clinical outcomes.

#120: FDA Payer Communication Guidance, Twenty Years in the Making: Now What?
Component Type: Session
Level: Intermediate
CE: ACPE 1.00 Knowledge UAN: 0286-0000-19-533-L04-P; CME 1.00; IACET 1.00; RN 1.00

The FDA Payer Guidance released in 2018 has provided some clarity to industry and payers. The FDA explicitly noted the important difference between information required for medical product approval and what is needed by payers to make decisions about population-based coverage and reimbursement. The FDA Payer Guidance is largely pragmatic regarding HCEI communications and advances industry’s proactive dialogue with payers. However, there remains areas of uncertainty within the guidance. A panel composed of the relevant stakeholders will have an open dialogue on the intention of the guidance, the challenges with developing a guidance for industry and payers, the practical challenges of operationalizing aspects of the guidance, the remaining informational needs of payers from industry to inform access decisions.

Learning Objectives

Discuss how to decrease the anxiety in proactively communicating relevant coverage and reimbursement information from industry to payers for population-based coverage decisions.

#170: Making Early Access for Patients Happen
Component Type: Forum
Level: Intermediate
CE: ACPE 1.00 Application UAN: 0286-0000-19-565-L04-P; CME 1.00; IACET 1.00; RN 1.00

Research costs are increasing exponentially and patient populations are becoming more targeted. Healthcare systems throughout the world are struggling to cope with the costs of ever more specialized medicines. While these drug candidates hold the promise of slowing, or even curing disease progression, these innovations also often have limited evidence on long-term impacts. Regulators might wrestle with decisions on early access, but payers may also be reluctant to grant coverage for eligible patient populations. Early access may mean continued evidence generation once the drug is on the market, but traditional payment methods may not be well suited to address these issues, and their use may result in reduced coverage and patient access. This forum will identify challenges associated with early access, as well as coverage and reimbursement decisions associated with novel drug types, where there may be incomplete evidence or uncertainty of long-term value. Participants will focus on whether the current system is equipped to handle upcoming, novel therapies, and if not, what approaches would be best to pursue.

Learning Objectives

Recognize the difficulties in balancing patient access with incomplete understanding of a drug's benefits and long-term impacts; Analyze factors that contribute to coverage and reimbursement decisions; Discuss how to consider novel payment approaches to support appropriate patient access.

#299: Public and Regulatory Response To Drug Pricing Concerns
Component Type: Forum
Level: Intermediate
CE: ACPE 1.25 Knowledge UAN: 0286-0000-19-638-L04-P; CME 1.25; IACET 1.25; RN 1.25

Stakeholders agree that generics are an effective approach to lowering drug prices, but approvals are often challenging for sponsors to obtain, and the cheap prices that consumers value make it hard for sponsors to stay on the market. This session will describe the strategies that regulators and payers are using to combat those problems. FDA does not regulate the price of drugs, but the regulatory decisions it makes can nevertheless impact them. For generics, that can mean setting a high bar or a low bar for equivalence and deciding which kinds of products are eligible for accelerated review or additional interactions with the agency. Likewise, payers don’t control the application process, but their decisions go a long way to determining which products are developed. This session will analyze the regulatory strategies that can eventually prove successful, explain how companies and policymakers can best handle the development of complex generics, and discuss new steps payers are making to ensure generic sponsors have a market for the products after a long development process.

Learning Objectives

Identify the steps for successfully developing a complex generic product; Describe new reimbursement approaches being used to encourage a stable generic market; Discuss review pathway selection at the US FDA's Office of Generic Drugs; Recognize product categories where FDA is encouraging generic applications.

#396: Challenges to Access: Bringing Payers to the Table
Component Type: Session
Level: Intermediate
CE: ACPE 1.25 Knowledge UAN: 0286-0000-19-711-L04-P; CME 1.25; IACET 1.25; RN 1.25

While the FDA and EMA avail themselves for early engagement with pharmaceutical manufacturers, non-binding joint consultations with regulators and payers have been to-date available to manufacturers primarily in Europe. With the moving target of paradigm shift from volume-based to value-based healthcare delivery in the US, the question remains if viable avenues for engagement with payers exist in the fragmented market place. Traditional engagement opportunities through payer advisory boards and standing panels have proven moderately effective and with the growing focus on health technology assessment in the US that spans comparative effectiveness, short-term affordability and long-term value for money assessments, a dialogue may be warranted to explore more formal ways to engage manufacturers, regulators and payers. A panel composed of the relevant stakeholders will have an open dialogue on the topic offering a forum for generating potential concepts for testing to enable formal early payer engagement in the medicine development process in the US.

Learning Objectives

Identify potential innovative ways of early engagement with payers in the US to enhance medicine development programs and produce a “reimbursable file” at the time of regulatory approval.
