Today, health care costs are hitting employers in the pocketbook. Hospitalization, pharmacy and dental costs have risen in the last few years.
Here are three strategies to better manage your pharmacy benefits in 2006: Increase generic use, encourage mail-order delivery, and educate your employees.
About $50 billion worth of brand-name drugs will lose patent exclusivity over the next five years, meaning more consumers will have access to lower-cost medication. Mail-order delivery makes sense when a chronic condition is involved and can save cost. Teach your employees on what the benefit does and does not cover, how they can get the lowest cost alternatives, utilization and compliance. Managing these options can save you money.
