Did you know that pharmacy claims are now the largest component of health plan costs? Those who are responsible for benefit plan cost-containment are finding themselves with millions on the line in a high-stakes game where the house always wins.

Between Pharmacy Benefit Managers devising hard to understand contracts laden with hidden cost escalators, and FDA approvals of astronomically-priced specialty drugs, plan sponsors have the deck stacked against them.
Organizations like yours are seeing unaffordable cost increases and are facing non-renewals by stop loss carriers who don’t want to deal with high-cost pharmacy claimants.

Level the odds with our panel of experts, including PSA’s Certified Pharmacy Benefit Specialists (CPBS) who will expose what’s going on behind the scenes with your pharmacy plan.

In this seminar, you’ll learn how the game is played:

  • Egregious contract terms
  • Where is your PBM making money off of your contract?
  • Choosing an Rx plan sponsor that will give you an honest plan break-out
  • Strategies for dealing with new specialty drugs now entering the market
