DIA: Driving Insights to Action

Biosimilar Savings and Their Price: BPCIA Turns Ten

September 28, 2020

2020 marks the tenth anniversary of the FDA’s Biosimilars Price Competition & Innovation Act, which created a regulatory approval pathway in the US for biosimilars designed to increase access to safe, effective and cost-effective biological treatment options for patients. “I have absolute confidence in these products as a scientist and seeing them work clinically, but we've got to make it work commercially,” explains Gillian Woollett (Avalere Health) in this interview with Anna Rose Welch (Chief Editor, Biosimilar Development, Life Science Connect). “I always say biosimilars offer savings–but be careful with that statement. That means somebody is not receiving the money they were previously receiving, and they don't want to forego that money.” Anna Rose will moderate the Short Course on Current Biosimilars Policy at DIA’s 2020 Biosimilars Conference.
