Zooming In on the Education and Empowerment of Patients in AMD Care

FDA-approved agents that target vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) constitute important elements of optimal management of AMD. Prior authorization (PA) requirements limit patient access to these therapies. Navigating the PA process can be frustrating for patients, and may result in treatment abandonment leading to suboptimal outcomes. Hence, there is a need for patients to become advocates of their treatment choice. The final module of this CME Outfitters Snack series describes step ...

Minimizing the Burden of Prior Authorization in AMD Through Actionable Strategies and Improved Communication

The development of anti–vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) agents has revolutionized the treatment of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Nevertheless, optimal management of AMD is impeded by challenges in access to FDA-approved therapies. Step therapy, a type of prior authorization (PA) instituted by the payer, mandates that more cost-effective therapies be used before more expensive alternatives, in a stepwise approach. However, applying this strategy to vision-threatening disea...

Keeping the Patient in the Center in AMD Care

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of legal blindness in adults over age 50, but the development of agents that target vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) has revolutionized its treatment. There are currently two FDA-approved agents (ranibizumab and aflibercept) and one off-label anti-VEGF agent (bevacizumab) being used to treat patients with AMD, and data from emerging anti-VEGF agents have also demonstrated efficacy in improving visual acuity. However, step the...
