Pharmaceutical & Life Sciences

The FTI Consulting pharmaceutical and life sciences team offers in-depth knowledge of the legal and regulatory challenges that confront pharmaceutical companies and develops appropriate strategic options for clients to pursue. We also provide strategic counsel in all aspects of financial, corporate, brand and medical communications.

The pharmaceutical and life sciences team includes more than 75 professionals who offer clients extensive expertise in matters of compliance, investigations, litigation and regulatory oversight. Our experienced team includes compliance experts, commercial and government payer experts, former auditors and accountants, data analysis and IT experts, as well as economists and statisticians. 

The FTI Consulting pharmaceutical and life sciences team assists clients through an efficient, cost-effective and proven combination of Proactive Compliance. Activities (i.e. monitoring and risk assessments, policy reviews, systems inventories and regulatory reporting requirements) and Reactive Compliance Activities (i.e. independent oversight of Corporate Integrity Agreements, systems reviews, transaction testing and auditing and recommendations and implementation). 

By combining data analytics with subject matter expertise, the pharmaceutical and life sciences team helps clients improve their business practices in ways that reduce risk and improve compliance. We enable clients to understand and define business risks, find weak spots in existing controls and develop proactive solutions rather than waiting for problems to develop.

Health Plans

FTI Consulting experts support managed care organisations, including those with Medicare and Medicaid contracts, pharmacy benefit managers, third-party administrators and their internal and external counsel. We provide clients with a full range of comprehensive methodologies designed to identify and rectify compliance and operational issues and to assist organisations in governmental audits, investigations and litigation matters.

FTI Consulting assists clients in identifying, managing and resolving regulatory compliance risks, offering services such as risk assessment, compliance programme design and implementation, auditing and monitoring programme development and corrective action plan preparation. We advise on operational improvement, investigations, litigation and dispute resolution. We also offer an extensive choice of Pharmacy Benefit Manager services.


Government Health Insurance Programmes

As the managed care industry faces extreme regulatory scrutiny from US federal and state agencies, as well as penalties for non-compliance, FTI Consulting helps clients identify, manage and resolve compliance risks that arise. This includes everything from issues involving Medicare and Medicaid to complex claims, enrolment and clinical data reporting, as well as fraud, waste and abuse analysis.
