Sleepless Nights of Drug Plan Management November 19, 2013 7:30 AM to 9:00 AM Four Seasons Hotel, 791 West Georgia Street, Vancouver, British Columbia Format: In Person Does your drug plan management keep you up at night? Perhaps not, however, you may have some important questions about: • Is private plan spending on new medicines sustainable?; • New research cost drivers of drugs, dental and vision care; • Measuring the value of your drug plan vs. the costs; • Impact of high cost drugs; and • The impact of expanded drug patent protection if enacted Comprehensive European Trade Agreement (CETA). This CPBI breakfast session will provide an evidence-based approach to provide answers to these questions. Brett Skinner will use available evidence to understand why BC drug costs are the lowest in the country, address the issue of sustainability of private drug plans, define the drivers that influence drug cost increases, and provide quantitative and qualitative measures of the value of investments in drug plans. This understanding will hopefully provide context to develop strategies for ensuring sustainability of BC private drug plans. Gail Attara will describe the results of a BC Healthcare system published study examining a drug reimbursement policy called Therapeutic Substitution, which required >50,000 BC patients with acid-related diseases, primarily gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD), to make a medically unnecessary switch from their prescribed proton pump inhibitor (PPI) to the cheapest available PPI. This evidence provides insight to strategies and unintended consequences of Therapeutic Substitution to reduce costs of drug plans. *Student pricing is available to CPBI members who have student status.

2013 Sun Life Canadian Unretirement™ Index November 13, 2013 11:30 AM to 1:15 AM Radisson Hotel Saskatoon, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Format: In Person Award-winning marketer and journalist Kevin Press, currently the Assistant Vice-President, Market Insights at Sun Life Financial, will discuss the Sun Life Canadian Unretirement Index and the three key retirement trends it suggests we will see in the short-term future. Firstly, early retirement may soon be a thing of the past, with only a quarter of Canadians expecting to be retired at 66. Next, unretirement means different things to different people. Some will work past 65 by choice, but the current study shows that most Canadians who expect to work past 65 say they’ll do so for economic reasons. Finally, with only one-third of Canadians satisfied with their retirement savings, there is a role for plan sponsors – in partnership with their providers – to help.
