Pharmacy Summit 2019

Event Date:5/29/2019 - 5/30/2019

Event Overview


 

Together, we can improve pharmacy costs and utilization.

The pharmacy industry is in a state of flux—evidenced by news related to acquisitions and strategic partnerships between major health insurer and pharmacy benefit managers—along with the entry of Amazon, etc.  Specialty pharmacy costs are rising creating financial pressures for plans and patients who are experiencing higher out of pocket drug costs; the legislative and regulatory environment is becoming much more complex as plans continue to face new and unique operational challenges around the effective management of pharmacy cost and utilization in addition to lack of transparency by their PBM partners.  

During this summit we will explore initiatives Alliance member plans are implementing to address pharmacy cost utilization management, discuss the use of vendors who have been effective in assisting plans to manage key aspects of their business in addition to brainstorming the development of strategic initiatives and/or ventures whereby we can collaborate to build, buy or hire outside resources to provide additional value.    

You won’t want to miss this opportunity to collaborate with your peers and participate in discussions around key topics of high interest that will power better insights and ultimately deliver better results. 

 



Event topics

  • Federal and state regulatory updates impacting drug pricing and pharmacy benefit management programs
  • Legislative changes around pharmacy rebates and implications for plans
  • Specialty pharmacy management innovations
  • Roundtable discussions/plan case studies
    • PBM management:  contracting, oversight, auditing

    • Opioid overuse management: CMS provisions and plan strategies
