VIDEO: Aimee Tharaldson, PharmD, Discusses the Impact of Biosimilars on the Specialty Pharmacy Market
In this video, Aimee Tharaldson, PharmD, Senior Clinical Consultant, Emerging Therapeutics Express Scripts, Inc, talks about the impact that biosimilar medications could potentially have on the specialty pharmacy market.
Although Dr. Tharaldson says that there has not been an impact yet, she says that "eventually, once more guidance is available, we will see more of the true biosimilars approved. Once we can get these to be interchangable at the point of service -- that's where we're going to see a lot of cost savings."
This video was taken on Thursday, October 4, 2012, at the Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy's 2012 Educational Conference in Cincinnati, OH.
