Most Surveyed MCO Pharmacy Directors Do Not Place Cost Control Measures on Branded Antiretroviral Drugs, According to a New Report from Decision

Additionally, the report finds that most surveyed managed care organizations' (MCO) pharmacy directors do not place cost controls on many of the branded antiretroviral products that are covered in their private health plans. As a result, most antiretroviral drugs -- including Isentress and Sustiva -- will not be subjected to new cost control measures over the next 12 months, according to more than 80 percent of MCO pharmacy directors surveyed.

The report also finds that, in order to compete more effectively with other antiretroviral drugs, surveyed physicians indicate that drugs in the CCR5 antagonist class will need to overcome hurdles associated with the medically necessary test that is used to determine patient eligibility for CCR5 antagonist drug treatment. Physicians consider the prerequisite co-receptor t
