Trending HealthEconomics.Com Pharma Pricing, Reimbursement, and Health Policy Stories Feature Rising Trend in Pharma Price Cuts to Secure Reimbursement
Date:12/14/2012

Ponte Vedra Beach, FL (PRWEB) December 13, 2012

The most-read story on HealthEconomics.Com HealthCare Value and Market Access News this week examines the growing trend of pharmaceutical companies to drop prices by up to one-half to convince the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) that the drugs are cost-effective. According to NICE Chairman Michael Rawlins, these “commercially confidential” price cuts are becoming both more common and larger, approaching 50% discounts. This poses implications for international reference pricing which examines drug prices in other countries in order to set a reimbursable price with the intent to contain growth in pharmaceutical expenditures. This story and another describing the discount offered by Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. on their drug for rheumatoid arthritis reversing a rejection in 2011 are covered more in-depth on HealthEconomics.Com.

Another top story on HealthEconomics.Com explored the response by major employers in the United States to deny health insurance to newly hired employees who work fewer than 30 hours per week, starting in January 2013. Many health care policy experts believe this shift by the nation’s largest employer to be an attempt to shift costs of paying for its employees’ health insurance to place the burden on the federal government, with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. This story is featured on HealthEconomics.Com News on Health Policy.
