Association of Accessible Medicines: Ensuring the Future of Accessible Medicines in the U.S.

The Association of Accessible Medicines (“AAM”) released a white paper on avoiding shortages and ensuring drug competition for patients in America.  AAM is advocating for the uninterrupted availability of lower-cost generic and biosimilar medicines.  In the paper, AAM asserts that by placing biosimilar medicines on a level competitive playing field with branded products –  for example, by allowing biosimilar developers to rely on consistent reimbursement and formulary placement to justify significant development costs – policymakers can ensure availability of affordable medicines for patients.
