Managed entry agreements apply to an increasing number of new, innovative drugs in a growing number of markets. They are designed to share the risk between the manufacturer and the payer, consequent on uncertainties - usually at launch - about the product’s value (clinical- and cost-effectiveness), budget impact and/or utilisation to optimise performance, whilst at the same time allowing patient access. For many products considered costly they are almost essential to achieve reimbursement where health technology assessment is applied.
Risk Sharing and Other Forms of Managed Entry Agreements for Medicines, Worldwide covers all the main types of agreements (finance-based, outcome- or performance-based, and compliance-based) and their many variants in all countries that employ them. The confusing taxonomy associated with the topic (e.g. price/volume deals, budget impact schemes, cost capping, cost sharing, coverage with evidence development, money back guarantees, conditional reimbursement, listing agreements, payment for performance, payment by results) is clearly explained.
