Innovative Pharmacy Control Programs for Public Sector Health Plans

Thursday, December 3, 2020, 10:00 AM – 10:45 AM CST
Innovative Pharmacy Control Programs for Public Sector Health Plans

Pharmacy continues to be one of the fastest-growing and most costly health categories in the United States. It accounts for 25% to 30% of a Public Sector employer’s health spending. 

Please join us and learn about innovative prescription benefits that provide an alternative to the conventional delivery of health plan prescription programs with Bill Hepscher (Rx Manage) and Scott Yancey (Rx Help Centers). As a Self-funded or Captive plan sponsor, you have the opportunity to reduce the overall cost of health care by offering plan members a voluntary, zero co-pay, mail order Rx benefit.

Additionally, some primary takeaways from this webinar will focus on the following:

  • International Pharmacy Options through Rx Manage –  The United States can pay up to 174% more for the same prescription drug than other developed countries. Learn why and how your plan and members can take advantage of programs that can save up to 70% on the cost of medications.  A voluntary program for plans and members needing to use name-brand drugs at a fraction of their current cost. 
  • Controlling Specialty Spend through Rx Help Centers.  While Specialty Scripts only account for 1% to 2% of total Rx,  their cost accounts for 50%+ of Pharmacy spend, and will continue to grow!!  Several creative solutions will be reviewed.
