Changes in the drug landscape are profound and significant - brand name drugs with expiring patents, the emergence of biologics and multiple legislative changes for generic drugs are just some examples. Using only past statistics to predict how these factors will impact future costs is no longer sound.

Join this live webinar. This session is a great opportunity for organizations to learn how predictive modelling can provide the knowledge to help influence future benefits plan cost increases through plan design optimization, wellness, and disability management.

Learning objectives:

  • Learn why predictive modelling should become an integral component of benefit plan renewal analysis going forward.
  • Does wellness work? Can we have a wellness business case with ROI? Learn how predictive modelling can assist plan sponsors in building and adjusting their benefits and wellness strategies.
