Elevate Your Submission Strategy for PLA’s with Private Payers

Continued tightening of access to private payor formularies combined with a move to outsource benefit plan and administration to third parties for some payers, means more barriers to access this market than before.  Hone your private payor access strategy by understanding new market developments and payor priorities.  Create an action plan to:

  • Leverage elements of successful public PLA submissions and adapt them for the private payer market
  • Analyze the influence of public payer decisions on private payors to increase your preparedness
  • What pharma companies can do to optimize the ROI of their submissions to private payers

Gain insight into what private payers need and succeed with a tailored approach to securing a PLA
