Navigate Legal Challenges and Opportunities to Build Sustainable Patient Programs

September 25-26, 2017
  • Arlington, VA

Manufacturer-sponsored patient assistance programs (PAPs) and related patient programs, including co-pay assistance organizations and 501(c)(3) foundations, are facing continued change and uncertainty, particularly with regard to regulation and compliance issues. As a part of this, a number of manufacturers have received subpoenas related to their influence on and funding of PAPs. These factors have contributed to extensive challenges as manufacturers and other stakeholders work to determine the new “rulebook” for compliant PAPs.
