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


Reality Check on IBS-C

Market access for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome with constipation (IBS-C) 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 40% of the lives under commercial formularies are covered with utilization management restrictions
  • Class Trends: In September 2020, the FDA authorized an investigational new drug (IND) application from Seed Health to evaluate the impact of its DS-01, a broad spectrum probiotic, on gut microbiota of patients with irritable bowel syndrome
  • Key Findings: This indication is dominated by pharmacy benefit coverage. An IBS-C diagnosis is required, and tests are issued to rule out other causes of constipation

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