Health Policy, 2017, vol. 121, issue 12, 1240-1248

Abstract: Personalized medicine and orphan drugs share many characteristics—both target small patient populations, have uncertainties regarding efficacy and safety at payer submission, and frequently have high prices. Given personalized medicine's rising importance, this review summarizes international coverage and pricing strategies for personalized medicine and orphan drugs as well as their impact on therapy development incentives, payer budgets, and therapy access and utilization.
