The PAN Challenge is an initiative of the Patient Access Network (PAN) Foundation in collaboration with The American Journal of Managed Care. Entitled “Beyond Charitable Assistance: Sustainable Strategies for Providing Access to Critical Medications,” the Challenge seeks abstracts/papers that propose ways to reduce or eliminate barrier and disparities that Medicare and ACA enrollees face in obtaining medications to treat life-threatening, chronic and rare diseases.
Abstracts are due October 30th, and papers are due December 31st.
If selected as a “winning” paper, the author will have an opportunity to present at PAN’s Cost-Sharing Roundtable, to be held in Washington, DC February 24, 2017 (date to be confirmed). There is a cash reward, and the paper will also be published in a supplement of the Journal.
