Amanda Forys, MSPH

Amanda Forys, MSPH, is a senior director at Xcenda, a part of AmerisourceBergen, on the Reimbursement Strategy Insights consulting team. Her experience includes reimbursement policy analytics, with emphases on Medicare and commercial coverage and payment policy. Her work has covered a wide range of topics, including economic and policy modeling and analysis around biosimilars, innovative payment models, chronic disease management, federal budgetary impact models, and Medicare payment systems. 
Prior to January 1, 2018, 340B facilities treating Medicare beneficiaries were reimbursed at the average sales price of the drug plus 6% (biosimilars at ASP plus 6% of the reference product’s ASP). However, the Medicare Part B Outpatient Prospective Payment System established a new rate for drugs billed by 340B facilities as of 2018 of ASP minus 22.5%.

Because Medicare will be such a large payer for biosimilars, coding and payment policy set forth by CMS will have a significant effect on the success, sustainability, and availability of these lower-cost alternative products.
