There are several pending legislative proposals in both the House of Representatives and the Senate designed to encourage more commercialization of biosimilars, but the 2020 election may determine their timing.

Depending on the outcome, 3 major biosimilar antitrust actions, as well as a related Federal Trade Commission investigation, could significantly change how biologics are priced.

At this point in the legislative calendar, it is time to take a look at what may have a likely shot at passing Congress before the 2020 election season gets underway. With the contentious debate on drug pricing that has occurred during the last several months, insulin pricing is still garnering plenty of attention.

Since Democrats control the House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, is a major factor in determining how fast this agreement moves through Congress. One of the major Democratic points of concern is how prescription drugs, namely biologics, are handled in the USMCA.

One main reason for increasing insulin prices is rebates. During the April 10, 2019 United States House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing titled “Priced Out of a Lifesaving Drug: getting Answers on the Rising Cost of Insulin” manufacturers, pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), and congressional representatives discussed the effects rebates were having on prices. Currently, manufacturers pay rebates to health plans or PBMs in exchange for formulary access, which is a major reason we see manufacturer net pricing declining but list prices increasing.

March has been a rollercoaster month for the healthcare industry. From the sudden resignation of FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, MD, to the announcement of the FDA’s current thinking on nonproprietary names of biological products, I have been hearing many questions from stakeholders on what, exactly, is happening with biosimilars. Let’s take a quick look at the FDA’s latest guidance on naming and at where the FDA is headed with new leadership.
