PAN Challenge and Cost-Sharing Roundtable
A collaboration between PAN and The American Journal of Managed Care® (AJMC ®), the PAN Challenge (2015, 2016 and 2017) is a national competition seeking original research on the topic of patient assistance, focusing on patients’ out-of-pocket costs for prescription medications. The Cost-Sharing Roundtable is an annual event hosted by PAN in collaboration with AJMC ®. Bringing together advocacy leaders and policymakers, the Roundtable provides a forum to offer perspectives on patient cost-sharing challenges and potential policy solutions.
