Medical Pharmacy – The Future of Pharmacy Benefit Management

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

Magellan Pharmacy Solutions’ 2012 Medical Pharmacy & Oncology Trend Report provides the only source for trends and benchmarking statistics for injectables paid under the medical benefit.

Join us for this complimentary webinar and hear Michael Waterbury, President of ICORE, discuss the report's key findings.

Did you know that Lucentis, an injectable therapy for treating Macular Degeneration, is among the top 5 for drug-spend per million lives covered under the medical benefit? In fact, specialty drugs now account for 25%1 of total spend. And this figure is expected to grow to over 30% by 20162, with approximately half the specialty spend occurring on the medical benefit3. Do you have the right tools and strategies to manage this spend?

Sign up today to gain valuable insights from the 2012 Medical Pharmacy & Oncology Trend Report including:

  • Staggering trends in specialty drugs and effective cost management solutions
  • Unlocking the hidden costs of specialty drugs paid under the medical benefit
  • The Site of Service threat that can no longer be ignored
  • Useful intelligence from payor and health plan data
  • Discussion on the effectiveness of current management strategies
