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


April 3, 2019

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 autoimmune and rheumatoid arthritis) that generate high direct and indirect costs
  • Things to consider regarding CDHPs 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 workshop will highlight examples of how employers and coalitions are addressing various challenges in specialty pharmacy.

Improving Employee Engagement by Measuring Benefit Program Results


April 3, 2019

During this workshop you’ll learn from experts and employers how they measure success for both traditional and non-traditional benefits programs. We’ll discuss specific measures and data points, then apply them to your benefits strategy and programs. You’ll have the option of bringing your own vendor data or using our sample data to apply specific analytic strategies, find program ROI, and control for outliers to determine real program performance without bias. Come with an open mind and a willingness to get hands-on.  You’ll learn:

  • How to track and measure the success of traditional pharmacy benefits
  • What other self-insured employers are doing to find program ROI
  • Program vendor data and key metrics to track
  • How to apply analytic strategies to your own benefit programs
