Skadden presented a webinar, “Patient Assistance and Reimbursement: Legal and Practical Considerations,” focusing on prescription assistance programs (PAPs), which have had a significant impact on a wide range of business initiatives, impacting companies’ operations with regard to product types, product cost, level of available reimbursement and variability of accepted uses, among others.

The discussion included relevant issues involving the current framework under which PAPs operate, as well as areas of enforcement focus and emerging practices in patient assistance.
