The Payer Landscape

From white and brown bagging, to home infusion, vertical integration and beyond, the payer landscape is constantly changing. During this session, we discussed the top current payer trends impacting specialty practices, including step therapy restrictions, prior authorization requirements, national payer policy changes, and white/brown/clear bagging. Jane Clayton, Regional Director, Managed Care, offered strategies and advice for contracting and renegotiating with payers, along with an overview of the support that McKesson provides specialty providers.

Onmark GPO

Public Policy Update

Ben Jones, Vice President of Government Relations and Public Policy, kicked off his session with insights into how the change in the administration might look in the first 100 days. The Biden administration plans to spend an aggressive first 100 days addressing the COVID-19 pandemic with a new stimulus bill, a nation-wide testing strategy and distribution management, among other priorities such as climate change and healthcare reform. This session also largely focused on the Most Favored Nation (MFN) policy and litigation in place to provide an injunction and invalidation of MFN.
