Valuing a Cure: Draft Methods Adaptations

On August 6, 2019, ICER released this draft set of methods adaptations to its value framework to be applied in the assessment of potential cures and other treatments that qualify as “single or short-term transformative therapies,” or SSTs. While these proposals do not fundamentally alter ICER’s approach to value assessment, they are intended to equip decision makers with a more reliable and transparent evaluation of SSTs’ uncertainty, value, and value-based pricing. A companion technical brief is available here.

The proposed adaptations will complement and build upon ICER’s ongoing update to our 2020 value assessment framework.

The full outline of proposed changes will be open to public comment until September 6 at 5:00 p.m. ET. All comments should be emailed as an attached Word document to On September 17 at 8:30 a.m. ET, ICER will livestream a meeting of invited stakeholders to gather additional input on whether and how to adapt its standard assessment methods for SSTs.
