For employers a drug plan continues to be the most volatile and difficult to budget for. In BC the rapid increase in the approval of new high-cost, specialty drugs has led to greater cost pressures within BC’s Fair PharmaCare program and more cost-shifting to plan sponsors.
In this presentation we will explain what is driving the changing risk profile for health benefit plans. Learn how plan sponsors can address these challenges without negatively impacting employee health. We will also explore some key products in the drug pipeline impacting employer’s future plan designs.
