Episode 4 - Treatment Guidelines and Economic Considerations

During this segment, Raoul S. Concepcion, MD, explains how the rapid development of agents for castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) has led to an expanding number of clinical guidelines, developed by multiple organizations, for clinicians’ use during important treatment-decisions.

However, he explains that the treatment options recommended in these guidelines are expensive, creating a challenge to both clinicians and payers.

To clarify misconceptions about medical policy and coverage for patients with CRPC, Michael Kolodziej, MD, discusses the variables that payers consider when making decisions about coverage for these expensive treatment options.
