Faced with costly and effective treatment for hepatitis C, states are exploring innovative alternative payment methodologies (APMs) to expand access to treatment and generate savings. Using a “Netflix-style” subscription model, Louisiana and Washington are negotiating agreements with drug manufacturers to get unlimited access to hepatitis C drugs for a fixed, predetermined cost. Join this NASHP webinar to hear about Louisiana and Washington’s innovative APMs as well as related research into hepatitis C from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI).
