When Employers Tackle Opioid Abuse and Take Mental Health Seriously


March 7, 2018

1:30 – 5:00 pm

The statistics are staggering: 1 in 5 adults will experience a diagnosable mental illness this year. Employees suffering from substance abuse, depression, anxiety, or other mental illnesses are still expected to show up to work, perform at high levels, and act professionally — all while hiding their illness. This workshop, presented in partnership with the American Psychiatric Association Foundation's Center for Workplace Mental Health, will cover why investing in a mentally healthy workplace is beneficial for both your employees and your organization's bottom line. You will gain information and insight on mental health issues to help you make important and much needed changes, including:

  • Why these topics might be the most important health issues employers should be talking about this year
  • The impact of mental health issues on employers, including: missed work, increased costs, quality of life, and productivity at work
  • Case studies from employers who are tackling opioid addiction and behavioral health, including GE Appliances and Intuit
  • A playbook for initiating and managing effective programs and policies
  • Tools for tracking and reporting results

Specialty Pharmaceutical Plan Designs: Direct and Indirect Consequences for Plan Sponsors


March 7, 2018

1:30 – 5:00 pm

Specialty pharmaceuticals continue to evolve and escalate as a growing concern for employers. Accordingly, as employers consider new plan design options, it is critical to understand the complete consequences of their benefit design decisions -- consequences that include the impact of adherence and medical care on such outcomes as absence, disability employee performance and productivity. This pre-conference workshop will bring together leading experts to help participants think through the implications of specialty pharmaceuticals. The speaker panel will address topics such as:

  • The impact of low prevalence diseases (such as rheumatoid arthritis and auto-immune) that generate high direct and indirect costs
  • Things to consider regarding CDHP’s in the Specialty Pharmacy arena
  • How to follow the dollar through the maze of specialty pharmacy and the potential impact
  • The value of selecting specialty agents based on indications and not PBM contracts
  • The impact and challenges of Biosimilars in the specialty space
  • What does good look like from an employer perspective? 

This session will highlight examples of how employers and / or coalitions on how they are addressing various challenges in specialty pharmacy.
