Paying for Cures Workshop

Survey the financial challenges of sustaining new cell and gene therapies, assess adoption barriers, and anticipate coming changes in policy and practice

Durable, potentially curative therapies for genetic disorders and cancer have arrived. Short—even single dose—treatment regimens yield lasting health benefits, but large single payments will challenge the current reimbursement system. Financing approaches, policy, and business operations may need to adapt to address emerging therapies.
