Becoming a Pharmacy Benefits Hero – 10.27
In recent years, the costs of providing healthcare benefits – especially due to a significant rise in medication cost – continue to escalate. With new drugs costing hundreds of thousands of dollars per year and potentially millions of dollars per treatment, employer education and thoughtful planning are more important than ever.
Leaders that have, or are considering a self-funded medical plan should attend this session to gain a better understanding of pharmacy cost trends and how you can help manage this cost and the risk it represents. You’ll leave the session understanding practical questions you can ask and steps you can take to ensure your company captures opportunities to reduce pharmacy benefit costs by as much as 50%.
Join this session to:
- Discuss practical solutions to manage the cost of Rx claims today and reduce risks of high-cost medications in the future
- Understand the role of Pharmacy Benefits Managers (PBMs) and why many PBMs aren’t helping employers reduce drug claims costs
- Explore the impact of 30-35 new high-cost specialty medications each year for the next 5 years
