Kidney Disease: A Price-Sensitive Market But A Bundle Of Opportunity

Executive Summary

Medicare’s bundling policy for drugs and services in dialysis has turned on the pricing pressure in kidney disease. The cost containment policies have negatively impacted sales of some drugs and put a spotlight on growing costs in chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease. Nonetheless, there is plenty of opportunity for new drugs that can address the area’s unmet medical need, especially if they can help to reduce broader health care spending. That will require demonstrating value to payors and providers, however, particularly for drugs that treat secondary conditions associated with kidney disease.
