During the COVID-19 crisis, managed care professionals are facing unique challenges to deliver patient care. This resource center is designed to aggregate timely information for AMCP members and stakeholders.
AMCP Format 4.1 includes new sections describing the evidence needs of HCDMs for unapproved products nearing the end of the product development pipeline, as well as unapproved uses of existing products for which FDA approval is being sought.
The Biologics and Biosimilars Collective Intelligence Consortium (BBCIC) was established to address anticipated needs for post-marketed evidence generation for novel biologics, their corresponding biosimilars and other related products.
On April 19, AMCP submitted joint recommendations to CMS on Medicare Advantage enrollees seeking COVID-19 vaccine without their Original Medicare card. CMS is recommended to present clear guidance to all vaccination sites and providers and instruct MACs to provide assistance to providers to ensure vaccine administration is accurately reimbursed and entered into the COVAX portal.
AMCP submitted a letter on the reopened comment period for the Medicaid Coverage of Innovative Technologies rule, which created a pathway for fast national Medicare coverage of innovative technologies, including digital therapeutics.
