Reality Check on Ovarian Cancer
Market access for ovarian cancer 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 medical benefit, about 50% of the lives under commercial formularies are covered with utilization management restrictions
- Class Trends: In May 2020, the FDA expanded the label of AstraZeneca and Merck & Co., Inc.’s Lynparza (olaparib) in combination with bevacizumab for the maintenance treatment of adults with advanced epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube or primary peritoneal cancer who are in complete or partial response to first-line platinum-based chemotherapy and whose cancer is associated with homologous recombination deficiency positive status defined by either a deleterious or suspected deleterious BRCA mutation and/or genomic instability based on an FDA-approved test
- Key Findings: Coverage of ovarian cancer medications falls under both the pharmacy and medical benefits and remains very strong for all of the products in this class. Most products are limited by their policies for treatment at specific stages of ovarian cancer
What can pharma do to curb this trend and overcome these challenges?
