MISSISSIPPI BUSINESS GROUP ON HEALTH TO HOLD FREE WEBINAR
FOR EMPLOYERS ON APRIL 9, 2019 AT 11:30 a.m.
 
What Every Employer Needs to Know About Managing
Pharmacy and Specialty Medication
 
MADISON, MISSISSIPPI, April 3, 2019– The Mississippi Business Group on Health will hold a free webinar for employers on April 9, 2019 at 11:30 a.m. CT titled “What Every Employer Needs to Know About Managing Pharmacy and Specialty Medications.”
According to a recent Kaiser Family Foundation opinion poll, one in four people taking prescription drugs say they have a difficult time affording their medications. Additionally, the cost of prescription drugs has become a hot topic for consumers and policymakers and now has bipartisan support for government action to lower prescription drug costs. The report also reveals how the cost of new specialty drugs are a significant driver in the increase of health spending.
Employers who join the free webinar will learn more about:
  •  What can be done by employers to help ensure their employees get and use the needed medications;
  •  How specialty pharmacy can be more effectively managed;
  •  Review lessons learned from other employers who are actively working to better manage pharmacy and specialty medications; and,
  •  Learn key questions employers should ask their pharmacy partners in order to better manage their pharmacy benefits.
Individuals interested in attending the webinar must register for the event by going to the Mississippi Business Group on Health’s website at https://msbgh.org/event-3249869.
