American Conference Institute’s 13th Annual


Intensive training in government payor programs and health care reform implementation

April 29-30, 2014 | Hotel Nikko | San Francisco, CA

Master the calculations and complexities of government payor programs.

Now in its thirteenth iteration, ACI’s Rx Drug Pricing Boot Camp – West Coast Edition has been designed to provide drug manufacturers, PBMs, plans, and pharmacies with the critical information they need to effectively and efficiently manage government pricing.  This conference is a marriage of a primer on the basics of pricing for government payor programs and a comprehensive, in-depth, training program.  It will help ensure that your pricing group and other related departments are well-versed in critical pricing concepts and methodologies, as well as trends, best practices, and imminent changes. This course will enhance your understanding of complicated pricing calculations and will bring you up to speed on the latest in government pharmaceutical pricing. 

Understand how the implementation of health care reform is impacting government pricing practices.

Gain best practices to comply with new regulations.

CMS released its draft final rules for AMP in February 2012.  Since then, the industry has been working to respond to these changes.  At this point, no one can say for sure just when the Final Rule will be released.  Despite the delay, government pricing remains rife with evolving concepts and details on which it is imperative to stay apprised. This conference will bring you up-to-the minute information on recently enacted rules, regulations, and CMS guidance and how your company can incorporate changes resulting from the implementation of health care reform into your pricing and compliance practices.  Our faculty of pricing experts will help maximize your company’s participation in government payor programs by eliminating the confusion and uncertainty created by health care reform. 

Learn from and network with your fellow pricing and reimbursement professionals.
In addition to intensive training in core pricing methodologies and concepts, ACI’s Rx Drug Pricing Boot Camp, also provides the opportunity to network with fellow pricing colleagues.  With more than 80% of attendees coming from drug manufacturers, PBMs, plans and pharmacies, this is the perfect opportunity to find out what other companies are struggling with and how they are overcoming their pricing related challenges.
