Council Statement on IQVIA Institute Report: Biosimilars in the United States 2020 – 2024

“Today’s IQVIA report confirms that biosimilars are gaining ground to the benefit of patients and the U.S. health care system, but also raises a red flag about the long-term sustainability of the biosimilar market. With data showing that biosimilars are projected to generate more than $100 billion in savings over the next 5 years, these are high stakes for patients, payers and especially policymakers, who must ensure that Medicare policies encourage the use of lower-cost biosimilars.”
