Washington, DC (PRWEB) August 06, 2015
From the waves of new, high-cost breakthrough medications to the emergence of biosimilars to generic price inflation to vendor consolidation, there has never been a period of greater change and uncertainty for pharmacy benefit managers — and the stakes for health plans, PBMs, purchasers and patients have never been higher. Atlantic Information Services, Inc.’s (AIS) upcoming virtual conference, “Proven Pharmacy Benefit Strategies for a Rapidly Changing Marketplace” will focus intently on the big-dollar areas of drug spend and aggressive steps the nation’s leading pharmacy benefit managers are taking to control them. In this Sept. 16 program, pharmacy benefit experts — including executives from the two largest PBMs — will discuss how plan sponsors are adopting bold, innovative strategies to control soaring specialty pharmacy and other costs.
Participants will get:
- An inside look at the pharma pipeline and strategies health plans and PBMs are using to manage the cost of these new drugs effectively without sacrificing patient outcomes.
- Proven copay coupon tactics being used in today’s marketplace to curb (or promote) the use of coupons when appropriate.
- The details of formulary exclusions and aggressive utilization management protocols that are working to control drug spend without compromising patient access.
Additionally, each of the virtual conference’s three sessions will conclude with generous time allocated to answering individual questions.
AIS’s virtual conference allows participants to attend a live conference without having to travel to a meeting site. Plus, the registration fee includes a free On-Demand recording of each session, so any agenda items can be reviewed at a later time.
