Headache is one of the most common symptoms in the general population, but despite its high prevalence and impairment, migraine is often not recognized or effectively treated. To understand the appropriate and cost-effective use of novel treatments for migraine headaches, AMCP convened an expert forum of stakeholders.
Partnership Forum: Participants considered the possible solutions for addressing rising costs and discussed challenges, practical steps for implementing point of sale rebates and other proposed solutions, and discussed how patient assistance programs and copay policies fit into the affordability equation. This forum will develop recommendations and possible solutions to improve price transparency, address the rising costs of medications, and help patient understand and manage drug cost.
AMCP will occasionally publish highlights from AMCP and other conferences designed for those in managed care pharmacy. Highlights include summaries of select featured session and posters. Meetings published currently include AMCP Nexus 2019, AMCP's 2019 Annual Meeting, and the 2019 ACR/ERP Annual Meeting.
Partnership Forum: Participants discussed how digital therapeutics with web and designed based applications are emerging as a means to treat conditions by engaging people to improve health and wellness.
Partnership Forum: Participants examined how to improve decision making for prior authorization and step therapy based on current market dynamics and considerations to ensure patients receive the most appropriate medications.
