Pharmacy Track: Drug Pricing Legislation & New Entrants to the Drug Manufacturing Market
Date & Time
Saturday, August 22, 2020, 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

In recent years, new legislation and administrative actions have annually disrupted drug pricing. With legislatures and regulators at the state and national level considering multiple proposals addressing drug pricing, 2021 will likely bring further changes. In this session, attendees will uncover the potential far-reaching implications of complex changes to drug pricing as legislatures and regulators strive to lower prices and out-of-pocket costs for patients through greater transparency in drug prices and rebates. Topics covered will include current pricing proposals, the impact of commercial payors on drug pricing, new market entrants and the effects of pricing proposals in an election year.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Describe current pricing proposals being considered in state legislatures and Congress. 
  2. Evaluate the impact of commercial payors entering the drug pricing discussion.
  3. Identify the impact of a presidential election year on drug pricing proposals.
