The first interchangeable biosimilar product was approved by the FDA in July 2021. These are widely used and have the potential to bring more affordability to patients.

-- What are the benefits of using an interchangeable biosimilar?
-- What does interchangeability mean and what is needed for the FDA to approve as interchangeable?
-- How is substitution at the pharmacy different from a person’s insurance plan switching their insulin due to formulary changes? (it’s not taking choice away, additional studies have been done that show…..use FDA language)

-- Who is a good candidate for an interchangeable biosimilar?
-- What are key points to explain to your clients?
