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
