The pharmaceutical industry awaits a new plan under Biden.

While there is a new Administration under President Biden, the war against the opioid crisis remains steadfast as the pharmaceutical industry awaits new federal guidance. In recent week’s Biden’s reversal of Trump’s X-Waiver exemption has puzzled stakeholders, however, they remain optimistic as to the plans of this Administration to address the crisis, based on Biden’s campaign platform.

The state AGs remain active in the fight.

While we await new federal guidance, the state AGs remain active as Utah and Vermont each settled with drug distributor McKinsey for a combined amount of over $7.5 million.

Stay tuned – exciting announcements on the way for this year’s agenda.

We are watching new developments as they unfold and are in talks with leading authorities in this area. The agenda is currently under development but rest assured that we will continue to bring you great content and a faculty rich in government officials, in-house industry counsel, and outside counsel who will provide an up-to-date analysis of the current regulations, best practices for staying compliant and avoiding DEA investigations, and strategies for how to respond when DEA comes knocking at your door.
