Learn to work effectively and efficiently with the largest purchaser of pharmaceutical products
The U.S. government spends billions of dollars per year on the purchase of drugs, making it the largest purchaser of pharmaceuticals in the U.S. Sales to the government typically account for a large portion of a company's total revenue, and a company cannot remain competitive in today's market without selling to the government. As pharmaceutical manufacturers' revenue and profits are so closely tied to government contracts and pricing, it is essential to have a thorough understanding of the Veterans Health Care Act, Federal Supply Schedule Contracting, Federal Ceiling Price, and pharmacy benefits programs.
While having the government as a client is lucrative, it can be costly, time consuming and confusing. Understanding the basics and key terms of "Big Four" pricing is necessary to ensure that companies do not enter into price contracts that obligate them to comply with impossible terms. Selling to the VA, DoD, PHS and Coast Guard also requires constant price calculations and price reporting. These calculations are often perplexing and result in price anomalies that can leave even the most seasoned contracting practitioner baffled. On top of complying with the "Big Four's" numerous rules and regulations, companies must also evaluate how their "Big Four" prices affect their overall pricing.
