AMCP believes in competitive marketplace solutions to lower costs for Americans and recognizes the critical need to address the rising cost of prescription medications. Rebates represent a way to negotiate drug discounts and constitute an important tool to control drug costs.
AMCP supports systems and processes that allow for clinical and economic information to be shared between manufacturers and health care decision-makers proactively and in a timely manner prior to FDA approval. A proactive PIE system would expedite coverage and utilization management policies for emerging therapies, including those granted breakthrough designation, providing earlier access for appropriate patients.
