Who are the payers in the pharmaceutical industry?

Healthcare payers in the pharmaceutical industry such as health plan providers and Medicaid are the bodies or organisations other than the patient that finance or reimburse health services and medical product expenses.

Payers in pharma can be categorised broadly into three types based on their functionality – national payers, regional payers and local payers.

National payers review the product to determine the price or reimbursement of products. Regional payers review the product depending on the impact of the product on the region. Local payers, who may be within hospitals, such as formulary committee members, understand the direct impact of the product on the hospital budget and the benefit to their patients.
