The new and innovative formularies are specifically addressing these catastrophic drugs while maintaining the balance between access and cost escalation. Tools are being developed to help the employee, and their physician, make cost effective drug choices prior to filling their prescriptions. Speaker: Dave Wowchuk, Vice President of ClaimSecure Join us for a presentation that will: • Discuss drug trends both nationally and provincially • Dissect a drug claim by reviewing the 3 year trend on dispensing fees, ingredient costs, and mark up. • Review the generic substitution trend • Review the Specialty Drug (Biologic) Fill Rates • Engage your employees into smart purchase decisions that minimize employee and plan sponsors contribution • Outline the future of non-traditional formulary management
