2020: Market Access Predictions in an Election Year

I’m Charline Shan, Vice President, Director – Access Experience Team, editor of All Access. I hope to bring you noteworthy and groundbreaking news via Precision’s bimonthly newsletter, by sharing the latest payer insights brought to you by our team of former payer decision-makers.

2020 holds a lot of uncertainties when it comes to the next big change in the US healthcare system. With the outcome of the presidential election at stake, the administration may stay the course and continue to push for price transparency and affordability, or change course and introduce no new proposals or legislation. In this edition, we asked our advisors for their predictions: Andy Cournoyer reflects on national payers, Dan Danielson determines how regional health plans respond to integration, Elizabeth Oyekan discusses a new focus for Medicare Advantage plan sponsors, and Jeremy Schafer assesses how pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) will stay the same or change in 2020.

I think you’ll find the insights in All Access to be thought-provoking and helpful in navigating the payer landscape. As always, please feel free to drop me a note and let me know if you have a topic suggestion for the payer team to address, and we’ll do our best to cover it in a future edition.

Warm Regards,

Charline Shan, RPh, MPH
Vice President, Access Experience Team
