Kathy Roe Explains Medicare’s Specialty Drug Coverage on AHLA Webinar

Health Law Consultancy’s Kathy Roe participated in an American Health Law Association March 3, 2022 webinar on specialty drugs in which Roe explained the nuts and bolts of Medicare’s specialty drug coverage. Roe reviewed how Medicare Parts B and Medicare Advantage cover certain specialty drugs as medical benefits versus specialty drugs covered under the prescription drug benefits of Medicare Part D plans. A particularly timely aspect of Roe’s presentation was review of special drug pricing, including the Medicare Part D concept of “negotiated prices” and the controversy about drug manufacturers’ Part D drug rebate programs.
