DOJ, Drugmakers Renew Disputes Over Charitable Foundations
Two lawsuits — one against federal health regulators by a drugmaker and the other against a drugmaker by the Dept. of Justice — represent the latest salvos in the dispute over whether and how drug company-supported charities can help patients pay for expensive medications.
The two suits may ultimately offer a chance to clarify what manufacturers can and cannot do to fund copay assistance charities, particularly for patients with rare diseases, says Lance Grady, who leads the market access practice at Avalere Health.
