Drug Companies give help for hard hit ADAPs
« on: June 07, 2010, 08:57:42 PM »
Along with norvir and kaletra discounts provided for by Abbot (which was pointed out in another thread about a week ago) even more drug companies are coming out with discounts for other meds for budget-strapped ADAPs around the nation
Heinz Family Philanthropies, Welvista and Abbott Announce Solution to Help Patients on State ADAP Waiting Lists for No-Cost HIV Medications

AHF Lauds Gilead for AIDS Drug Price Concessions for Nation’s ADAPs
The agreement was reached between Gilead and the ADAP Crisis Task Force (ACTF) of the National Alliance of State & Territorial AIDS Directors (NASTAD). Gilead, which markets the AIDS drugs Truvada®, Viread® and Emtriva® joins Abbott, Merck, Tibotec Therapeutics and ViiV Healthcare among the ranks of AIDS drug manufacturers that have recently offered significant price cuts, freezes, or price rebate adjustments and other concessions on the pricing of their lifesaving AIDS medications to ADAP

AHF Lauds Merck for Offer to Double ADAP AIDS Drug Rebates for Isentress
Merck is offering to double its drug discount rebates for hard-hit ADAP programs nationwide; freeze its price for ADAPs for Isentress at approximately $8,800 per patient yearly (more than $4,000 less than its $12,868 Average Wholesale Price [AWP] for the drug); and start paying its ADAP drug discount rebates to states upfront instead of months (or years) after the fact.

AHF Advocacy Spurs AIDS Drug Companies to Yield on Pricing
ViiV Healthcare, a new drug company formed in a partnership between GSK and Pfizer, has announced an agreement that will provide additional cost savings to cash-strapped ADAPs nationwide. The agreement was reached between ViiV and the ADAP Crisis Task Force (ACTF) of the National Alliance of State & Territorial AIDS Directors (NASTAD). ViiV Healthcare, which markets the AIDS drug Selzentry (maraviroc, first introduced by Pfizer in August 2007) and the commonly prescribed anti-retroviral treatments Combivir and Trizivir, joins Merck and Company, Johnson & Johnson’s Tibotec Therapeutics and Abbott Labs among the ranks of AIDS drug manufacturers that have recently offered significant price cuts, freezes, price rebate adjustments and other concessions on the pricing of their lifesaving AIDS medications to ADAP.
