SYMPOSIUM: Concept to Coverage: Utilization of Value Assessment Frameworks in Payer Decision-making


Tuesday, May 21, 2019 | 7:15 AM - 8:15 AM CDT

In an era where value assessment frameworks (VAFs) are formally being adopted and impacting coverage, pricing and reimbursement decisions, we examine recent high profile cases where specific VAFs are being utilized and discuss their impact on the broader trend toward formal adoption of VAF recommendations in the United States.

This symposium will also review recent payer trends and will provide perspective from payer decision-makers on their own experiences incorporating "value" into coverage determination.
