Making Drugs Cheaper Without Stifling Innovation -- Euro Style
Can we keep drug prices low without hurting innovation? Well, drugs are a lot cheaper in Europe than in the US, and there's still plenty of innovation over there. So what's going on?

Top 7 Type 2 Diabetes Medications
Some people who have type 2 diabetes can achieve their target blood sugar levels with diet and exercise alone, but many also need diabetes medications or insulin therapy. The decision about which medications are best depends on many factors, including your blood sugar level and any other health problems you have. Your doctor might even combine drugs from different classes to help you control your blood sugar in several different ways. 1. Metformin Generally, metformin is the first medication prescribed for type 2 diabetes. It works by improving the sensitivity of your body tissues to insulin so that your body uses insulin more effectively. Metformin also lowers glucose production in the liver. Metformin may not lower blood sugar enough on its own. Your doctor will also recommend lifestyle changes, such as losing weight and becoming more active. 2. Meglitinides These medications work like sulfonylureas by stimulating the pancreas to secrete more insulin, but they're faster acting, and the duration of their effect in the body is shorter. They also have a risk of causing low blood sugar, but this risk is lower than with sulfonylureas. Weight gain is a possibility with this class of medications as well. Examples include repaglinide (Prandin) and nateglinide (Starlix). 3. Thiazolidinediones Like metformin, these medications make the body's tissues more sensitive to insulin. This class of medications has been linked to weight gain and other more-serious side effects, such as an increased risk of heart failure and fractures. Because of these risks, these medications generally aren't a first-choice treatment. Rosiglitazone (Avandia) and pioglitazone (Actos) are examples of thiazolidinediones. 4. Sulfonylureas These medications help your body secrete more insulin. Examples of medications in this class include glyburide (DiaBeta, Glynase), glipizide (Glucotrol) and glimepiride (Amaryl). Possible side effects include low blood sugar and weight gain. 5. GLP-1 receptor agonists These medications slow digestion and help lower blood sugar levels, though not as much as sulfonylureas. Their use is often associated with some weight loss. This class of medications isn't recommended for use by itself. Exenatide (Byetta) and liraglutide (Victoza) are examples of GLP-1 receptor agonists. Possible side effects include nausea and an increased risk of pancreatitis. 6. SGLT2 inhibitors These are the newest diabetes drugs on the market. They work by preventing the kidneys from reabsorbing sugar into the blood. Instead, the sugar is excreted in the urine. Examples include canagliflozin (Invokana) and dapagliflozin (Farxiga). Side effects may include yeast infections and urinary tract infections, increased urination and hypotension. 7. DPP-4 inhibitors These medications help reduce blood sugar levels, but tend to have a modest effect. They don't cause weight gain. Examples of these medications are sitagliptin (Januvia), saxagliptin (Onglyza) and linagliptin (Tradjenta).

Inside the Indian Generic Drug Manufacturer Cipla
India produces over 30% of the world's entire supply of generic drugs. Cipla is one of India's largest drug manufacturers. It supplies antiretroviral drugs to about one third of AIDS patients under treatment in Africa. C&EN Senior Correspondent Jean-François Tremblay went inside Cipla's advanced pharmaceutical ingredient manufacturing plant to learn more about the stringent regulations it must follow. India's future as the world's drugstore is a controversial topic. Other drugmakers have been heavily fined, or had products recalled or banned, because of problems at plants. And India is under pressure to make its patent system more like those in western nations. But India has found a market for low-cost drugs and that market isn't about to disappear.

Managing Prescription Drug Costs
Managing Prescription Drug Costs. Hello, I’m Matt Schwartz with Schwartz Insurance Group here in Louisville, Kentucky with another in our series in our video education series focused on employee benefits. The purpose is to teach you about the basic of reform and other benefits concepts, to share the latest ideas and tactics to help you be successful, and in short, to position you to “Be a PRO!” with regards to your benefits, communication and culture. I want to talk today about prescriptions and prescription drug costs. For most employers, small or large, this is a big topic of conversation. Prescriptions typically run 20-25% of the annual “spend” on a health plan and so gaining control of those costs is obviously a very important strategy. For a long time we’ve talked about just the consumerism side of the equation. And so with that, we think about the difference between generic and name brands and helping people understand the safety of generic drugs and what the FDA does for those approvals – and educating folks on the fact that that is what they should be thinking about. Also, having folks ask questions at their physician’s office when something is prescribed. Literally having the pharmacy formulary list in-hand when to ask if it isn’t on level one of two, is there something safe to take that is on a lower level. A lot of states have laws where, if a prescription doesn’t say “dispense as written,” a pharmacy will automatically substitute a generic drug. Those are things we’ve talked about and you can also think about ideas such as mail order pharmacy where you can get a three-month supply for a one or two month co-pay. So, those are the things that are built in to a plan design that are kind of consumerism ideas. One of the other areas, especially as you get into the larger or self-funded market is just really thinking about what are the costs of drugs and how do we impact costs from a population standpoint. For example, one of the things recently that we’ve been utilizing is a program called Rx Choice which is basically a program that allows us to shop among Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs). So we have the ability to take any employer’s data and go out and do a full look in the marketplace in terms of what are all the PBMS out there, looking at things such as their base prescription drug costs, administrative fees, dispensing fees, and even getting into topics of rebates and how they handle rebates. We also look at how their formulary operates. And how is their network set up? Would there be disruptions vs. the current scenario? The bottom line is that by looking at things like that you really can have impact on just the base spend that an employer has on prescriptions through their health plan. So, those are the types of strategies that a large employer should be looking at. If you’re simply insured through a carrier and using their affiliated pharmacy benefit manager, sometimes those aren’t the best deals – especially when you move into the unbundled arena. Sometimes, it is worth the effort to go look at alternates to see if you can reduce your drug spend. If there is a specific concern or question that you have – or if you have suggestions for future topics – please let us know. www.schwartzinsgrp.com (502) 451-1111.

The Real Deal: Generic drug prices
ALBANY -- If you take generic medications, you've likely noticed you're paying more for some of them. Certain drugs have quadrupled in price over the last year. Patients and pharmacists are furious and now lawmakers are looking to do something about it. "Last month, I had to order like 6 different prescriptions and it came to quite a bit," says Arlene Laboy of Sloansville. She recently received a warning from her pharmacist that she was not expecting, "they have told me that some of my medications are going to be increased," she says. Laboy, like millions of others, relies on a number of generic drugs to stay healthy and she's paying a lot more for a few of the same pills she's been taking for years. "It's a sporadic issue, it may be a handful of medications, maybe 15-20 at a time but what is incredible is the percentage of increase in price, something that could be 8 cents is now 9 dollars a pill," says John McDonald, owner of Marra's Pharmacy in Cohoes. A few examples, the price of Doxycycline, an antibiotic used to treat infections went from $20 for a 100-pill bottle in October of 2013 to nearly $2,000 a year later, Albuterol Sulfate, a common asthma treatment shot from $11 per bottle to $434. "There are different reasons, sometimes valid reasons‚there may be a raw material shortage, an FDA inspection may close down a few facilities usually in a foreign country and then there are times there are no valid excuses, we don't get a valid reason," McDonald says. Even if you're not taking any of the impacted medications, you're still paying for them, "we spend 15 cents of every premium dollar just on paying for drugs," says Paul Macielak, the President of the New York State Health Plan Association which represents insurers. And at the moment, he says, there is little oversight on how those prices are set, "pharmaceuticals today is the most profitable sector in healthcare, I mean I think the running profit is around 20%, overall that's more than five times what health plans and hospitals earn in terms of any kind of a margin, so that's something I think warrants somebody looking at," he says. Hearings are being held both on Capitol Hill and in Albany to discuss what can be done to increase transparency of generic drug pricing. "For the most part, generics are very cost effective options, the problem is though when you have these roller coaster episodes, it really wreaks havoc in the market," McDonald says. The Generic Pharmaceutical Association says while there have been some price spikes, they do not reflect the broader U.S. market, which includes 12,000 generic medications. Either way, for Laboy who is on a fixed income, these ups and downs are causing some serious budget issues.

Sarokaar - Withdrawal of NPPA’s guidelines on Drug Price Control
In a recent decision, the National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority (NPPA) has withdrawn its guidelines for price control on drugs which do not fall under the National List of Essential Medicines (NLEM). This move is said to have an impact on 108 non-essential drugs. These guidelines were earlier issued under its Drug Prices Control Order which empowered NPPA to control prices of drugs not falling under NLEM also. Many are concerned that this might lead to a steep price rise of certain drugs in India, some of which are required in treatment of serious medical conditions, as the pharma companies would be now free to fix their prices on these drugs. Watch Sarokaar with eminent panellists discussing the issue from various perspectives. Guests: Dr. Sambit Patra (National Spokesperson, BJP) ; Amitabh Guha (National Convener, Jan Swasthya Abhiyan ) ; M L Sharma (Advocate and Petitioner​) ; D G Shah (Secretary General, Indian Pharmaceutical Alliance) ; Dr. Vikas Vajpayee (Assistant Professor, Centre for Social Medicine and Community Health, JNU) Anchor: Amrita Rai

The Rising Costs of Prescription Drugs
AARP on Skyrocketing Drug Prices, their Impact on Consumers and How People Can Save Highlights from the latest Rx Price Watch Report Exorbitant prescription drug prices are a hot button issue right now with no end in sight. From public outrage to Congressional hearings to pharma's 'bad boy,' Martin Shkreli, the concern about high drug costs isn't going away any time soon. And coming down the pike is a pipeline full of very expensive specialty medications. A new AARP report shows the prices of prescription medications are rising much faster than inflation. Recent data show that retail prices for over 600 of the prescription drugs most widely used by older adults increased at a rate that is 6 X higher than the inflation rate. This trend is unsustainable by any measure. The average cost for just one drug is $11,000 per year! More and more Americans are finding that they simply can't afford the prescription drugs that they need to stay healthy. As drug prices go up, all consumers get stuck with the bill in one way or another. Leigh Purvis, the Director of Health Services Research at AARP Public Policy Institute,talks about the current trends in retail prices of prescription drugs and highlights from the latest Rx Price Watch Report.

Big Pharma Greed: Your Generic Drugs Are Getting More Expensive - The Ring Of Fire
The pharmaceutical industry holds enormous power over our health, our politicians, and even our economy.

CHSRF on Call: Reforming Generic Drug Pricing in Canada
Because generics offer the same quality advantages as their branded counterparts, generic drug manufacturers compete for market share by offering low prices. The Ontario Drug Benefit (ODB) program currently has a fixed rate which does not necessarily align with the cost of producing the drugs. In this session of CHSRF on Call, Aidan Hollis, Professor, Dept of Economics, University of Calgary and Matthew Brougham, Vice-President, Products and Services, Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technology in Health, explore two options for generic drug pricing: ■ the implementation of sliding scale, and ■ using tendering systems to reward producers while better aligning payment with production costs.

Part D Drug Plan -  How Formularies & Tiers Can Cost You!!
http://www.FirstMedicareAdvisors.com - - Recorded Hotline: 1-800-958-8171 - Office: 1-800-825-2919. - - Email: info@firstmedicareadvisors.com - - PS: No Sales Pitches Ever! We hate'em as much as you do! The Medicare Part D is your drug coverage. Here is a key point: The Part D drug plan is completely different than the drug plan you may have had as an individual or at your workplace. They are not the same types of benefit. Part D Plans are required to cover certain types of drugs, but they may choose which drugs it covers. Your drug plans are offered by private insurance companies. Before we talk about drug tiers, let’s talk about how the companies offer their benefits: All prescription drug plans have a formulary that lists the drugs covered. By law, both brand name and generic drugs must be included in the formulary. They also must have a variety of those categories. Each plan’s formulary can be different from other company benefits. And formularies can change from one year to the next. Well, how does the drug plan create its formulary? The purpose of the formulary is to identify drugs that work for you. But - also price-effective for the company. The effort to control costs is why they use of drug tiers The companies divide the drugs they provide into “tiers.” The level each drug goes into is based on what price the plan pays to the pharmaceutical manufacturer. If a drug program receives a lower price on a drug, then it can place it in a lower tier and pass the savings onto you. Each plan has a different copay, coinsurance, and deductible. Therefore, you pay more for a drug on one plan’s formulary over another plan. Each insurance company decides its own tier formula. They may offer you a formulary with several different levels. The lower level drugs have the lower cost. The price increases based on the higher tier. If you have a question or need help with your different parts of Medicare give us a call at either our Recorded Hotline at 1-800-958-8171 and record your question or request. The second and quickest way is to call my office direct at 1-800-825-2919. You’ll get an answer to point you in the right direction. Here’s how drug tiers typically work: Tier 1 is usually generic drugs with lower costs. Tier 2 is usually “a preferred” brand name medication. These are drugs that the insurance company has negotiated to get lower prices. Tier 3 is called the “non-preferred” drug brands that are the same as the tier 2 brand names. But the plan must charge the drug company price. Tier 4 is usually the specialty drugs. You will often be required to pay a coinsurance and copay on these drugs. Tier 5 is usually the experimental drugs and cost the most. Most likely your formulary is going to change. Why? Because tiers will be changing for different drugs? For example, a few years back I was taking a drug called Lipitor. Man, was it pricey! But eventually, a generic called Atorvastatin came on the market. Fortunately - the price dropped dramatically. Regularly generic versions of drugs come into the market. The pricing for drugs may be renegotiated during the year. Both these scenarios can cause your plan to add or remove your drug from your formulary. The plan may move it to another tier. To save money you want to know and understand your plan’s drug tiers. When you enroll in a Part D plan check the tiers for the drugs, you currently take. Then you can calculate your copay or coinsurance. If you’re prescribed a new drug by your doctor, find it in your formulary and see which tier it is in. What happens if your doctor prescribes a drug that costs more because of a higher tier in your formulary? If that happens, ask your doctor to prescribe a drug that costs less on a lower tier. Generally, generics are a good place to look for prescription savings. Talk to your doctor about what lower-priced drugs may work for you. If you can’t find a good similar drug file a request and ask your plan to allow you to pay a lower price for a higher-level tier drug. If you need additional information about your prescription drug resources, give our office a call on our Recorded Hotline. That number is 1-800-958-8171 and then record your question or request. However, the best way is to call my office direct at 1-800-825-2919. You’ll get an answer to point you in the right direction.

Alvogen founder: Generic drug price wars will drive consolidation | World Finance
Generic pharmaceuticals has become big business in recent years, as the drug industry has ricocheted down a series of patent cliffs over the last decade. You'd think it would be triples all round for investors; but in the US, publicly listed generics companies have actually seen their market capitalisation drop 57 percent since January 2016. Robert Wessman, founder of Alvogen, explains that customer consolidation and over-leveraging to acquire assets has changed the industry permanently. Watch our other interviews with the Alvogen chairman and CEO, where he discusses the company's origins on a restaurant napkin, and his vision of leadership.

Healthcare & Pharmaceutical Industry - Pfizer CEO Ian Read
"When it comes to drugs, Europe is ‘free-riding’ and committing ‘blackmail.' Pfizer CEO Ian Read delivered remarks on health care and the pharmaceutical industry. He said he opposed any legislation that placed price controls on pharmaceutical drugs, calling it bad policy. He also outlined recommendations on how to improve America’s health care system. These recommendations included the need for more incentives in health care prevention and eliminating the approval backlog for generics. Professional Profile: Ian Read, 59, has spent his entire career at Pfizer ($PFE), joining the company in 1978 as an auditor. He job-hopped and globe-trotted, first through Latin America and then to Europe and on to corporate headquarters. Before taking over as CEO at the end of 2010, he was a corporate SVP and president of the worldwide pharma businesses. Total Compensation: $25.634 million Compensation Breakdown: $1.74 million in salary, $3.4 million bonus, $6.44 million in stock, $6.5 million in options and $7.15 million in pension and deferred compensation, plus $409,892 worth of perks, car service, company aircraft privileges and other compensation. Company Performance: Besides heading up the biggest drugmaker on the globe, Read has set the industry talking with his plans to streamline Pfizer. His back-to-pharma-basics strategy has won fans in the investment community, and analysts are hoping for more spinoffs and breakups, if not at Pfizer, then perhaps at Johnson & Johnson ($JNJ) or another diversified Big Pharma company. Read announced his intent to spin off or sell two business units back in 2011, and last year, the plan started coming to fruition. Pfizer sold its nutrition unit to Nestle for $11.9 billion and laid the legal groundwork for the spinoff of its animal health division, Zoetis. That unit's bond sale and IPO, wrapped up early this year, beat all expectations. Meanwhile, the company has been slimming down in another way: by cutting costs. The company's workforce shrank by more than 12,000 last year, and more layoffs were announced in December. An R&D restructuring also contributed to planned cost savings of $4.5 billion a year. What's left? The company's designated core operations--its R&D-based pharma business, and its "value" businesses in off-patent drugs and consumer healthcare. It was a tough year, saleswise; generic competition for key products, including Pfizer's longtime best-seller Lipitor, took a $7-billion-plus bite out of revenue. Even the company's new childhood vaccine, Prevnar 13, acquired along with Wyeth in 2009, began to falter. But the company's emerging markets sales are growing, if not as quickly as it may have hoped. More importantly, 5 new drugs won regulatory approval before year's end, including the orphan drug Elelyso, for Gaucher disease; the rheumatoid arthritis fighter Xeljanz; and the anticoagulant Eliquis, widely pegged as a major blockbuster.

Fighting skyrocketing prescription drug prices
By: James Tully HARRISBURG, Pa. -- Prescription drug spending is surging in the United States, with one report showing a 13 percent increase last year, the largest rise since the beginning of the century. Despite the rising costs, there are ways for consumers to help keep the drugs so many people need to stay healthy from draining bank accounts and becoming overwhelming. They're costs and struggles Lori Mardis, of Cumberland County, know all too well. Nine different medications in the morning and afternoon, all coming with a hefty price tag. There are the daily calls to the liver, heart or kidney specialist, an exhausting process, but none of it is for her. And it's all for her dad, and to Lori, there's no other option. "He would have to be in a home, or worse he could have passed away," she said. But Lori's process to becoming her father, Ed's, caregiver has been a struggle. "You can call the insurance company. You can ask the same question five times to a different person and you'll get a different answer, where do I go from there," Lori said. The rising cost of prescription drugs was the main issue. After Ed didn't meet the criteria to qualify for PACE or PACENet, two of Pennsylvania's biggest assistance programs, Lori didn't know where to turn. CBS 21 featured her struggles to find assistance programs in February. The company that manufactures the most expensive medication her father is prescribed saw our story and reached out to Lori. They had an assistance program. By going directly to the manufacturer she received a free year's supply, a nearly $8,000 value. State Sen. Pat Vance, chair of Pennsylvania's Health and Welfare Committee, said often times if you ask you'll find many manufacturers do have assistance programs. She also does feel that often times drug companies charge too much, but it's a two-way street. "They realize as soon as it goes off patent and becomes generic everybody else is going to make it too, they think they need to make the money upfront and there's something to be said for that," Vance said. But, what if that's not the root of the problem? "Now this is going to be a radical statement from a former nurse, but I'm not so sure that seniors don't take too much medication and one contradicts the other," Vance said. Vance said if you see more than one doctor, don't assume they're all on the same page, something Lori can relate to. "That's one of the first things we are asked when we go to each one of the doctors, has there been a medication change so that this doctor knows that this doctor made changes," Lori said. Many times seniors need help conveying all of the information. Whether it's a son or daughter, a trusted friend, or even a registered nurse, the experts say seniors should have someone attend appointments with them. Knowledge is power, especially at the doctor's office. If you're in need of financial help with long term care providers, there are non-profit groups that offer assistance. LeadingAge PA is a trade association representing Pennsylvania not-for-profit organizations that provide housing, healthcare and community services primarily to the elderly.
