The National Pharmaceutical Council (NPC) will bring to focus a contentious issue in the health care industry: Why do some patients with the same condition sometimes have different out-of-pocket costs than others for their medicines?
In a free, online webinar titled “Same Condition, Different Costs: Should Patients Pay Different Amounts?,” NPC will touch on five principles for when this dynamic is unacceptable.
The webinar is set for noon – 1 p.m. EST on Tuesday, July 18.
“Audience members will have the opportunity to engage in a question-and-answer session with a stakeholder reactor panel that will address the salient and sometimes difficult realities associated with cost-sharing models,” NPC said in a press release.
The webinar will be moderated by NPC Vice President of Comparative Effectiveness Research Jennifer Graff.
