vendors

preclude vendor from allowing full audit rights

certification deadline

Review of RFP Responses
HealthTrans – Withdrawal of Submission
“Thank you for allowing HealthTrans to participate in the HRPA/TIPPS 2008
certification process. Please accept this letter as notification that HealthTrans,
after careful consideration, has decided not to proceed with certification this
year.
As a pioneer and a continuing leader in the area of not only transparency, but
also a differentiating business model that reflects our philosophy of visibility,
value and validation we could not agree more with the principles espoused by
HRPA.
We appreciate the opportunities that have emerged from our relationship with
both Hewitt and HRPA over the recent past, and HealthTrans looks forward to
working with you in the future to further the interests of both clients and
consumers.” (HealthTrans)

RFP - Additional Topics of Interest
AWP Alternatives
With the possible withdrawal of AWP from the marketplace as an available reference price, please describe your
organization’s current “plan of action” as it pertains to pursuing alternative pricing metrics.
– “Although none of the options meet all the requirements [of a replacement
metric], the WAC has the least amount of challenges surrounding it...”
– “Medi-Span maintains their position that their process for deriving AWP will
remain unchanged...”
– “No change is without its challenges; however [we believe] that WAC is the right
alternative…”
– “[Our] current choice is WAC, but AMP is also being evaluated…”

RFP - Additional Topics of Interest
Follow-On (Generic) Biologics
What specific actions is your organization taking to promote the present or future availability of follow-on (generic) biologics?
–
“CIGNA Pharmacy Management is involved with the coordinated efforts of PCMA and AHIP
in lobbying and promoting FDA action to approve the availability of generic biologics.“
–
“Express Scripts is among the leaders of the legislative initiative to develop an FDA
pathway for follow-on biologics... and published a financial model of the potential savings of
such a pathway.”
–
“Aetna is FOR a regulatory pathway to allow FDA to approve generic biopharmaceuticals…
Aetna is OPPOSED to legislation that messes with patents or directs the FDA as to what to
review, how to review it and what to decide (we don't want to pre-judge the science).”
