For the first time, the AMNOG seriously tackles the price monopoly of 1 January onwards for eligible new pharmaceuticals launched on. Since its introduction on January 1, , AMNOG has hampered the market access of some products in Germany such as Trajenta (anti-diabetic) and Retigabin. AMNOG is here to stay.

We will continue to monitor and analyze the upcoming developments and discussions in particular with a focus on the impact on small biotech- companies and orphan drug manufacturers.
IQWiG’s rationale is described briefly as below. The assessment procedure is only complete with a formal decision by 2101 G-BA on the added benefit and on the extent of added benefit.
The process consists of two phases. In Januarythe EMA released a draft guideline on the investigation of subgroups in confirmatory clinical trials for public consultation EMA, If several alternatives for the expedient comparative therapy are identified, the refund rate may not lead to higher annual therapy costs than those of the most economical alternative.
On the basis of the dossier, the Federal Joint Committee examines the additional benefit of the new medicinal product as described by the pharmaceutical company. It should be understood that only the original German aamnog is legally binding. If turnover is higher, the pharmaceutical companies also need to prove an additional benefit for such orphan drugs.
In Octoberone year after publication of the first early benefit assessment, IQWiG staff members published an analysis of the dossier assessments completed up to the end of June Does it do justice to this task?
Open in a separate window. It does not seem sensible to have one set of margins applying to all situations. We understand that the magnitude of an observed treatment effect is also important to regulators when judging whether an observed benefit is clinically meaningful or not.
It issues directives for the benefit catalog of the statutory health insurance funds and specifies measures amnob quality assurance in inpatient and outpatient areas of the healthcare system. In other words, a new treatment with a benefit on PFS and a noninferior benefit on OS relative to a control could be approved by regulators.
A lower confidence level could mitigate the increase in variance due to a reduction in the number of events in the two groups. For one thing, removing a component in a composite endpoint could reduce the power of the study.
This criterion applies to price negotiations only.
One of the tenets of statistical principles in ICH E9 is prespecification. Secondly, on this basis the National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Funds negotiates with amnoog pharmaceutical company on a refund rate section b amnof Book Five of the Social Code. The Federal Joint Committee decides within another three months after publication how the patient-relevant additional benefit of the new medicinal product is to be classified. If a pharmaceutical without additional benefit cannot be allocated to a reference price group, a reimbursement price will also be agreed on.
Pharmaceutical companies can send any questions they may have regarding the G-BA consultation procedure to the following email address:. Products are repeatedly launched with a considerable amount of marketing activity which however do not in fact deliver in everyday care what they promised. C requires an interaction test.
If turnover is higher, the pharmaceutical companies need to prove an additional benefit for such orphan drugs too. Please include the required documents on CD or DVD, along with a cover letter signed by an authorized person including authorization, if applicable and addressed to the Federal Joint Committee: Presently, there are ongoing discussions in the Parliament, aiming to finalize the legislation.
The number of healthcare systems that conduct health technology assessment HTA has steadily increased over the last decade.
AMNOG – evaluation of new pharmaceutical
In general, we reference the English translation of a document if a translation exists. Hint weakest certainty of conclusions: For electronic transmission, the zmnog must be sent to the Federal Joint Committee as a CD or DVD, and include a cover letter signed by an authorized person including authorization, if applicable. Product price, as a discount on the sales price set by the manufacturer, has to be negotiated within 6 months. If several alternatives are determined as the expedient comparative therapy, the refund rate may not lead to higher annual therapy costs than the most economical alternative.
In accordance with the framework agreement, the refund rate is agreed in the event of an additional benefit by a supplement on the annual therapy costs of the expedient comparative therapy.
For this purpose, the company submits a dossier to the G-BA based on the authorization documents and all studies carried out on this pharmaceutical. If there is no such reference price group, the National Association of Statutory Health Insurance Funds GKV-Spitzenverband — GKV-SV negotiates with the pharmaceutical company on a refund rate which does not lead to higher annual therapy costs than the expedient comparative therapy.
If several alternatives are amnnog for the expedient comparative therapy, the refund rate may not lead to higher annual therapy costs amnof those of the ammog economical alternative. Lower expenditure on medicinal products with no additional benefit means that the probability of additional contributions amnot contribution increases falls. The pharmaceutical company reports both it and the refund rate to the price reporting agency.
The result of the benefit assessment is published on the internet, and pharmaceutical companies, federations, and experts are given the opportunity to submit written and verbal statements on the result. How beneficial are drugs entering the market in Germany?
Implementation of AMNOG: An industry perspective
Please include the required documents on CD or DVD, along with a cover letter signed by an authorized person including authorization, if applicable and addressed to the Federal Joint Committee:.
These are, firstly, organisational questions, such as the venue of the negotiations or the intervals at which they are held. Because, previously, medicinal product prices in Germany have been higher than in most other EU States, legislature has provided that the actual sales price in other European countries is also zmnog be taken into account in negotiations on the refund rate in accordance with section b of Book Five of the Social Code.
The expectation of two large outcome trials is especially unrealistic for a new indication on mortality or severe morbidity for an approved drug.
Recherche en Soins Infirmiers25— Therefore, reducing the number of events in the groups by removing a component from the composite endpoint leads to a larger variance for the log hazard ratio estimate and a wider confidence interval for the log hazard ratio. Inthe Federal Parliament Bundestag of Germany passed a new law Arzneimittelmarktneuordnungsgesetz, AMNOG on the regulation of medicinal products that applies to all pharmaceutical products with active ingredients that are launched beginning January 1, This amount then applies to all persons with statutory insurance, as well as to those with private insurance.
Where necessary, the G-BA will then give comments in writing to the company which additional documents or information is required. It is however also possible to compare with non-treatment. Table 2 describes the basis for the classification.
