Since its initial release in 2000, the AMCP Format for Formulary Submissions has provided a framework to advise drug manufacturers regarding important payer evidence requirements related to evaluating new technologies for formulary consideration. Discussion leaders will provide an overview of key updates to the Format, Version 4.0, including new guidance related to emerging special topic considerations such as biosimilars, specialty drugs, and companion diagnostic tests. Modifications to improve the usability of the Format, with clarifying guidance related to logistical considerations such as evidence placement, dossier updates, and recommended implementation timelines, will be discussed.
