Global life sciences consulting firm Trinity Partners today announced that a few of its experts will share insights at the CBI Reimbursement and Contracting Conference, being held in Philadelphia, PA from February 28 – March 1, 2017. Their presentation, titled, ‘Garner Insight on Key Changes to Medical Benefit Reimbursement and Implications for Drug Contracting and Pricing’ will take place today at 2:00 p.m. EST. Also in attendance will be Partner Herman Sanchez.
“There have been significant market changes in this space even since Trinity Partners last presented to this audience at the 2015 conference,” said Sanchez. “We look forward to discussing these important evolutions.”
During this year’s presentation, Engagement Manager John Greenaway and Senior Consultant Nicholas Simmons-Stern will address Medicare Part B changes and their impact on the reimbursement and the contracting landscape. The two will take a deep dive into the oncology care model and discuss the evolving buy-and-bill landscape through case study examples, and will also explore how to overcome reimbursement hurdles in the expanding U.S. biosimilars market.
The presentation will include the following:
- Assessment of the current US biosimilar landscape including pathways to approval and market trends
- Discussions around the latest regulatory updates and FDA guidance on labeling for biosimilar products and interchangeability to determine impact on launch price and contracting strategies
- Insights into the Healthcare Common Procedure System (HCPCS) J Codes billing system
“The healthcare landscape is evolving rapidly and pricing pressures are continuing to mount,” said Greenaway. “It is rewarding to be able to share insights and discuss these important shifts with market leaders in the hopes of helping bio/pharmaceutical companies prepare for long-term success.”
Now in its fourth year, CBI’s Reimbursement and Contracting conference provides a platform for bio/pharmaceutical manufacturers looking to unravel complexities associated with reimbursement, pricing strategies and commercial contracting.
