As Authorized Generics Proliferate, Benefits Are Unclear

Pharmaceutical manufacturers likely will continue to turn to authorized generics — drugs produced by brand-name drugmakers without the brand label — as they face increased pushback against high drug prices, but payers and patients probably won’t see much benefit as a result, according to industry experts.

“I think we will continue to see authorized generics competing with traditional generics,” says Stacie Dusetzina, Ph.D., associate professor of health policy at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. “I’m hopeful that we will see fewer signs that they are being used in pay-for-delay types of arrangements or to discourage traditional generic competition.”
