Setting new standards in information exchange for the pharmaceutical and biotech industry


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 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 is expanding its coverage of the MRS Summit and is happy to announce that the 2015 program is newly branded as the Government Drug Pricing Forum.

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.
