Ready or Not, Biosimilar Adalimumab Brings the Heat in 2023

Anticipated Growth in U.S. Biosimilars Market U.S. payers and other healthcare stakeholders have eagerly awaited the launch of biosimilar alternatives to high-cost originator products as a new cost-control lever. However, much of the U.S. healthcare market has been frustrated by the sluggish incorporation of biosimilars into the marketplace, as compared to the notably smoother process taking place in European and overseas markets as early as 2006. Adalimumab Primed for Impact Recent federal legislation has accelerated biosimilar development and market entry, creating more opportunity for payers to significantly lower their drug spend and for patients to lower their out-of-pocket costs.

Developing Best-in-class Copay Programs for Gross-to-Net

Importance of Copay Assistance Programs A copay assistance program is an invaluable strategic cost-saving tool that biopharmaceutical companies integrate into their patient services offering. These programs are used to support a brand’s value proposition, while offsetting high-priced branded drugs, all of which can be the ultimate differentiator for a biopharmaceutical company. Copay programs are designed to reduce patients’ out-of-pocket (OOP) costs to compete with generic alternatives. These programs have many benefits for patients and health care providers. However, if not properly managed, they can become cost prohibitive. Therefore, it is critical to find the right balance between putting the patient first by designing a best-in-class copay assistance offering and maintaining […]

What’s next for ICER? Pharmaceutical pricing watchdog to venture beyond the pill.

Earlier in the month, the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER) issued a call for public input to help identify and prioritize non-drug topics for ICER assessments in 2020. It may seem like the ICER has always been focused on driving down the price of drugs, conducing health technology assessments to properly calculate the true value of drugs that create a burden upon our healthcare system. However, given the organization’s growth and focus on evolving their research, expanding beyond traditional pharmaceutical agents is a logical next step for the organization. Although pharmaceutical agents represent roughly 16.8% of US personal healthcare expenditures1, there is still a lot of so-called “wasteful […]

Decoding ICER: Successful Pharma Engagement with ICER for U.S. HTA Review

How pharmaceutical and Biotech companies engaged ICER drives the outcome. Reactive responses to ICER review have led to poor outcomes and numerous downstream impacts to payer access and pricing. Cohesive enterprise engagement has demonstrated significantly better recommendations and less pressure for the US payer community. Unfortunately, ‘reactive-response’ is more common than ‘enterprise engagement.’ KEY SUCCESS FACTORS ICER ENGAGEMENT Managing an ICER review is a time critical process with multiple checkpoints and opportunities to engage in the process. The process will define a transparent flow. However, the large number of steps combined with speed or review requires that the manufacturer has plans and all data available long before the review begins… […]

Global Biosimilar Competitor Assessment – Who Wins in Biosimilar Access and Why?

Biosimilar Competition Reveals Unique Buyer Types Among European and US Stakeholders EVERSANA identified two unique buyer types when conducting a segmentation analysis based on the reaction of EU and US customers to biosimilar competition and company performance.

biosimilar prioritization
Is your biosimilar product on the payer radar?

Biosimilars have been eagerly awaited in many European countries to realize cost savings from the biologics budget. Gaining insight on how European decision makers are currently prioritizing these biosimilars and how they expect this to shift by 2023 will allow a better understanding of the strategies that may prioritize revenue sources, identifying specific markets and indications, and determining which make/buy decisions would be most profitable. In order to answer this question, we performed a double-blinded survey that included 50 current or recent decision makers/influencers of healthcare policy across the top 5 EU countries. To participate, each respondent was required to hold or have held a position in a national, regional, […]

The Brink of the Biosimilar Revolution

Although biosimilars have not had the immediate uptake in the United States that they have had in Europe, health plans expect these products will become a staple of therapy for some diseases by 2020—if the price is right. Since the first biosimilar was approved in the United States in 2015, brand marketers have been bracing for the impact, given Europe’s fairly broad adoption of these products. But so far, biosimilars have not had a seismic effect on the U.S. market. This has been disappointing for both medical and pharmacy directors in U.S. health plans, who are eager to reap potential cost savings from biosimilars. This white paper examines why the […]
