Event Description

As the pharmacy benefit model and delivery of specialty drugs through the medical plan continues to miss the mark in a value-based solution, this annual forum will provide suggested actions and solutions for employers to disrupt the system and get results. Through this day of education, you will:

  • Hear employer challenges and strategies to address high-cost drugs, rare diseases and gene therapies
  • Identify where savings are hiding in your pharmacy benefits
  • Learn the value of evidence-based prior authorization criteria & formulary management strategies
  • Determine if vertical integration and carving out make sense & what to watch for
