Formulary guidance and transparency from P&T to point of care


Reality Check on Ankylosing Spondylitis

Market access for ankylosing spondylitis treatments reveals differences in payer coverage across each major channel, as well as specific trends in the drug landscape.  

To help make sense of this new research, MMIT's team of experts has analyzed the data for you and summarized the key findings:

  • Payer Insights: Under the pharmacy benefit, about 68% of the lives under commercial formularies are covered with utilization management restrictions
  • Class Trends: In April 2019, the FDA approved Samsung Bioepis Co., Ltd.'s Eticovo (etanercept-ykro) for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, plaque psorasis in people at least four years old, psoriatic arthritis and polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis in children at least two years old 
  • Key Findings: Contracting is everything in this indication. Humira is the top product from a contracting standpoint, with Enbrel close behind   

What can pharma do to curb this trend and overcome these challenges?
