Budget Impact of Adding Vedolizumab to a Health Plan Formulary as Another First-Line Biologic Option for Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a chronic, lifelong disorder of the gastrointestinal tract associated with an unpredictable relapsing and remitting disease course. Ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn’s disease (CD) are 2 common phenotypes of IBD. Patients with IBD often have considerable symptom burden despite appropriate treatment, and IBD frequently leads to debilitating complications that may require hospitalization, surgery, and/or the escalation of therapy.
