We champion moving to a health care system based on real value for patients. As part of our broader public policy agenda, biopharmaceutical companies are partnering with insurers to develop innovative and flexible ways to pay for medicines that focus on better results for patients, lower out-of-pocket costs and enable patients to access the right treatments their first time. These new partnerships, as well as the latest payment models, are critical to the success of our mission.
Too often patients have to fight for access to breakthrough medicines. Americans increasingly face higher out-of-pocket costs in their insurance plans, particularly for innovative prescription medicines. For patients struggling to access their medicines, many biopharmaceutical companies offer patient assistance. PhRMA’s Medical Assistance Tool (MAT) is a dedicated search engine that provides patients, loved ones and providers a single point of access to hundreds of public and private assistance programs available to them.
By pioneering and advocating the latest innovations for people everywhere, we continue to go boldly, together.
