INCHEON, South Korea, July 11, 2024 — Samsung Bioepis Co., Ltd. today released its sixth-edition of the Samsung Bioepis’ Quarterly Biosimilar Market Report, which includes the latest Average Sales Price (ASP) information of all biosimilars and reference products available in the US market. The report includes updates of biosimilar approval statuses, the definition of interchangeability in biosimilars and its exclusivity, as well as a successful case of adalimumab biosimilar adoption through an interview with a pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) at Scripius.

“The US biosimilar market is continually evolving and the need to monitor change on a routine basis has become critical to stakeholder evaluations. Our report investigates the market share and price trends for each molecule, allowing readers to access and compare current market dynamics on a timely basis,” said Thomas Newcomer, Vice President, Head of Market Access, US, at Samsung Bioepis. “The biosimilar market is no longer simple. However, as always, we strive to deliver quick and organized information to the US healthcare market.”

The latest report includes a new chapter titled ‘Biosimilar Deep Dive’, which encompasses two topics:

1) Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ): Interchangeable Biosimilars and Exclusivity
2) Payer Interview with Scripius on Adalimumab Biosimilar Adoption.

The FAQ defines the term ‘interchangeable biosimilars’ and its exclusivity, which are frequently asked questions in the market. It includes the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s noticeable shift and stance towards interchangeable biosimilars.

The payer interview presents a successful case of adalimumab biosimilar adoption from Scripius, an Intermountain Health company, forged from Intermountain’s health insurance division, Select Health. The interview details how Scripius removed reference adalimumab (Humira) from early 2023 and is planning to adopt biosimilars across all lines of business by October 2024. The interview also highlights the barriers, key lessons, and advice for payers when adopting biosimilars.

Samsung Bioepis has been publishing the report every quarter since April 2023 to provide the latest market share and price trends of all biosimilars available in the United States, after the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) publishes updated quarterly ASP values for each product.
