A serious effort exists to remove or decrease the role of rebates in the drug channel. We will help you and your team master one of the hottest topics in our industry.

Dr. Fein will share his latest thinking on:
  • What’s driving the effort to reform the rebate system
  • The pros and cons of such alternatives as point-of-sale rebates and negotiated discount models
  • The Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) proposed rule to alter the rebate system in federal programs—its timing, implementation, and risks
  • Key uncertainties that could affect your scenario planning—including the likelihood of change in commercial markets
  • The roles that PBMs, pharmacies, and wholesalers could play in operationalizing a shift to discounts
  • What a world without rebates could mean for patients, benefit designs, competition, drug prices, and more
  • PLUS: Dr. Fein will take your questions.


The webinar will take place on April 12, 2019, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. ET.

  • At least 48 hours before the event, you will receive an email with a toll-free dial-in number and a unique PIN for your location. You will also receive an email on the morning of the event.
