For payers, managing the complexity and cost of specialty pharmacy oncology products is daunting. For life sciences companies, ensuring payers have what they need to review these products and when they need it, pre- and post-FDA-approval, is key.

Join us to hear directly from payers regarding their process to review oncology drugs, including the type of information they are looking for and when they need it.

Specifically, this webinar will review: 

  • Evolving landscape of reviewing oncology pipeline drugs for formulary coverage and reimbursement decisions.
  • US syndicated payer survey results – based on responses from the® community
  • Payer perspective on reviewing oncology drugs for P&T and the challenges associated with coverage decisions
  • PBM perspective on accommodating payer requirements for oncology product P&T reviews
