On this episode of Not So Different, Tasmina Hydery and Brian Biehn from AmerisourceBergen discussed results from a recent survey, that were also presented at Asembia 2023, diving into the payer perspective on biosimilars and current pricing trends across the US biosimilar industry.
At Asembia 2023 in Las Vagas, Nevada, Tasmina Hydery, associate director of Digital Solutions at AmerisourceBergen, presented on the future of the biosimilars industry as well as how payers have responded to the influx of new biosimilar products in the United States. During the session, she shared results from AmerisourceBergen's report on the biosimilars pipeline, sharing survey results on how payers place biosimilars on formularies, their views on interchangeability, and their use of prior authorization and step therapy strategies to encourage providers to prescribe preferred products.
On today's episode, we spoke with Tasmina and her colleague, as well as a returning guest on the Not So Different podcast, Brian Biehn, senior director of Biosimilar Commercialization at AmerisourceBergen, about some of the points brought up during the presentation and some of the pricing trends that we're seeing in the space.
