Massaging the Data

Area of Interest: Benefits Format: In Person
If you have looked at a renewal lately, you might be noticing that the split between drugs and paramedicals is shifting.  The old 70/30 rule had edged towards 60/40.  The drivers?  A combination of a pretty good drug pricing holiday over the last few years combined with the steady growth of paramed usage.  Want to know more?  This year, we are presenting Green Shield Canada (GSC)'s (and our industry) first ever Health Study.  It absolutely has some of the old drug study favourites - like drug cost trends, generic penetration rates, biologics spend, and adherence.  But what is totally new is our dive into the rest of GSC's health benefits data...and the results may startle you.  Join us.
