The 60 Minutes story (www.cbsnews.com/video/the-problem-with-prescription-drug-prices/) aired last night illustrates the continuing gamble most plans sponsors take in not addressing high cost specialty drugs. There is not a group in this country that offers ACA complaint health care benefits for their employees that is not at risk of bankruptcy, yet they continue to gamble they will beat the odds.
RiskManagers.us has a very simple solution: Don’t cover high cost specialty drugs. Clients who have adopted our strategies have avoided bankruptcy. Affected members have, to date, been able to receive life saving high cost specialty drugs free direct from the manufacturer. Drug manufacturers have programs that assist patients who could not otherwise afford their prescription drugs. Plus, these drug manufacturers do not want the publicity if a patient cannot get life saving drugs because of cost.
In addition of excluding high cost drugs, RiskManagers.us advises clients in implementing Therapeutic Interchange.
