Aimed Alliance Asks HHS and CMS To Protect Patient Access By Scrapping Proposed Medicaid Rule


On July 16, 2020, Aimed Alliance submitted a comment to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to ask that the agencies abandon a proposed rule on Medicaid or limit the use of copay accumulators. If finalized, the rule would require that copay assistance be included the calculation of a prescription medication’s Medicaid “best price” if a health plan has implemented a copay accumulator program. This proposed rule could disincentivize drug manufacturers from providing copay assistance at all to vulnerable patients who may otherwise not be able to afford medically necessary treatments.
