Pharmacy Management Training
June 8, 2021 | 1:00-2:00 p.m.
Speaker: Joe Ross, Vice President of Underwriting
Prescription Drug costs have been one of the main cost drivers within healthcare plans over the last decade. With more specialty drugs and other high cost medications entering the market, employers face a significant challenge in managing and understanding the impact to the plans that they offer to their employee base.
With a lack of transparency and complicated system, it becomes difficult for employers to understand what is driving their prescription drug cost. Employers need to ensure that they are taking an in-depth look at their current program and what potential solutions may be available that could cut prescription spend up to 35-50%.
In this session, join speaker Joe Ross, Vice President of Underwriting and expert in prescription drug management, as he reviews:
- Examples of prescription drug pricing structures and key utilization metrics
- How the prescription drug market has changed and what are the key cost drivers/challenges employers are facing in the market
- The cost mitigation solutions available to employers including examples of success stories where employers have realized significant savings.
