Government will allow broader use of co-pay accumulator programmes for 2020
USA | 18 September 2019

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Department of Labour and the Treasury have jointly announced that they will not enforce the HHS's recently finalised policy that limits private health plans' use of accumulator programmes to prescription brand drugs for which a medically appropriate generic equivalent is available. Stakeholders should remain alert to any changes in state enforcement policies and consider opportunities to engage with the administration on future revisions.
