Less Than Two-Thirds of Surveyed Pharmacy Directors Expect to Reimburse Both Onglyza and Alogliptin Once They are Available for the Treatment of Type 2 Diabetes
Date:2/2/2009

Contract Negotiation is Leading Factor in Improving Formulary Placement of Newer Entrants to Antidiabetic Market, According to a New Report from HealthLeaders-InterStudy and Fingertip Formulary

NASHVILLE, Tenn. and GLEN ROCK, N.J., Feb. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthLeaders-InterStudy and Fingertip Formulary find that less than two-thirds of surveyed pharmacy directors expect to reimburse both Bristol-Myers Squibb/AstraZeneca's Onglyza and Takeda's alogliptin once they become available. Sixty-two percent of surveyed pharmacy directors say they expect their managed care organization to reimburse both products, while 26 percent say they expect their organization to reimburse only one. Seventy-eight percent of surveyed pharmacy directors say it is either likely or very likely they will reimburse Novo Nordisk's Victoza upon FDA approval.

According to the new Formulary Forum report entitled Formulary Advantages in Type 2 Diabetes: Impact of Current and Future DPP-IV Inhibitors and GLP-1 Analogues on Advantaged Reimbursement Status for Key Brands, 62 percent of surveyed pharmacy directors say their managed care organization would place Onglyza or alogliptin on Tier 1 or 2 if the agent were priced at $4.00 per treated day, but fewer (24 percent) would place it on Tier 1 or 2 if priced at $5.00 per treated day.

The report also finds that more surveyed pharmacy directors say that contract negotiations are important when improving the formulary position of Merck's Januvia and Amylin/Eli Lilly's Byetta than say safety or efficacy gains leading to downstream cost savings. Both recent entrants in the antidiabetic market, Januvia and Byetta are covered on 85 percent of health plans.

"Our survey reveals that contracting is a leading factor for pharmacy directors looking at products in the antidiabetic market," said Michael Malec
