Why it’s important to present an event on Government Drug Pricing?

  • Why it’s important to present an event on Government Drug Pricing?

    Since 2012, the Government Pricing industry primarily focused its energy on Medicaid as they awaited the AMP Final Rule. The changes with the 340B program and the shift in payer mix to MMCOs caused operational challenges, increased financial, compliance and contractual burdens. With the increase in complexity of government pricing, the Conference Forum has expanded its coverage and is presenting a Government Drug Pricing Forum for Government Contracting and Pricing /Reimbursement professionals.

    The GDP Forum will cover changes in MDRP, 340B, Tricare and Medicaid Managed Care. It specifically addresses the AMP Final Rule, HRSA guidance and price reporting, rise of contract pharmacies, new state reporting requirements and government and commercial contracting rules.

    This event brings together CMS, FDA, IRS, HRSA, States and OIG to address how to be compliant with separate agency requirements. Attendees will walk away with a thorough overview of healthcare trends and GDP policies that drive strategic decisions and operational plans.
