At our September member meeting we invite employers to delve into the dynamic and ever-evolving world of prescription benefits with Erin Albert, (MBA, PharmD, JD, DASPL) VP of Pharmacy Relations and Chief Privacy Officer at the Mark Cuban Cost Plus Drug Company. As the cost of pharmacy benefits continues to grow as a share of total spend, staying abreast of the latest trends and developments in prescription benefits is crucial for both businesses and their employees.

This session is designed to empower employers with insights, cutting-edge strategies, and practical tips to optimize their employees’ prescription benefits packages, and it will cover a wide range of topics, exploring the most significant trends and innovations impacting prescription benefits today.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • What should you know about Specialty Drugs?
  • Which ‘Bag’ for Specialty Medical Drug Spend and Management?
  • Biosimilars Spend: The Battle Between High Rebate vs. Low Net Cost NDCs
  • Weight Loss GLP-1s: Should they stay or go (on/off Formulary)?
  • The Explosion of Gene & Cellular Therapies: Treatment & Costs

Attendees will leave the session equipped with a deeper understanding of current prescription benefits trends and an actual prescription checklist of pragmatic questions to ask of their PBMs, enabling them to make well-informed decisions that enhance the health and well-being of their workforce while optimizing costs.

Don’t miss this opportunity to stay ahead in the competitive landscape of employee benefits and foster a healthier, more engaged, and productive workforce.
