Continue reading timely news and strategies to help contain specialty pharmacy costs and improve patient outcomes

Specialty pharmacy-related costs — which are substantial already — are expected to continue to soar as the drug pipeline is filled with hundreds of specialty therapies in various stages of development. With their extraordinary price tags, it’s easy to lose control of your drug spending with only a handful of beneficiaries on specialty products.

A new wild card: How will the Trump administration and Republican Congress impact the battle to contain pharma costs?


Renew your subscription today and Specialty Pharmacy News will continue to bring you insights into benefit design, reimbursement, network building, claims management, formulary decisions and other management issues.


You’ll have a steady flow of hard-hitting stories on timely topics like:

  • Steps that the Trump administration and Republican Congress may take to reduce skyrocketing specialty drug costs.
  • New drugs that will be fast-tracked through the FDA.
  • The future of the Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act — the ACA’s biosimilars pathway — and how an ACA repeal would impact existing and future biosimilars.
  • Management strategies such as clinical pathways, site-of-care optimization, quantity limits and formulary placement ... and their impact on cost, adherence and outcomes.
  • The latest therapies and management tactics for hepatitis C, chronic myeloid leukemia, melanoma, hypercholesterolemia, rheumatoid arthritis, MS, HIV/AIDS, and more.
