Reality Check on HIV
Market access for HIV 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 74% of the lives under commercial formularies are covered without utilization management restrictions
- Class Trends: In January 2021, the FDA approved ViiV Healthcare’s Cabenuva (cabotegravir and rilpivirine) for the treatment of HIV-1 infection in adults to replace a current antiretroviral regimen in people who are virologically suppressed on a stable antiretroviral regimen with no history of treatment failure and no known or suspected resistance to either cabotegravir or rilpivirine
- Key Findings: Contracting is prevalent for drugs in the same HIV grouping, with most activity focused on tiering preference. The designation as a protected Medicare class ensures good coverage for branded agents and more rapid inclusions on formularies
