What are the pricing and market access launch challenges facing companies today? The results of our survey are in!

Over the last 3 months, we have been conducting a survey to understand pricing and market access launch drivers and challenges for a successful PMA launch, and the areas that can be improved for future launches.

What are payers’ thoughts on these new treatments and how successful have they been at gaining reimbursement? 

There are a couple of considerations for each of these therapies. Firstly, these diseases are chronic, secondly, these treatments are effectively one-off administration processes. The treatment does not need to be re-administered each year, so there is no annual cost and the benefits should extend
