Trends Impacting Pharmacy Affordability – Potential strategies to preserve benefit affordability

Thursday, September 8, 2016


This presentation will provide a deep-dive understanding of the key factors that are driving pharmacy benefit trend today and potential near- and longer-term strategies to mitigate trend and improve affordability. 


Four key factors define the current environment: expedited drug approvals, egregious pricing practices, questionable value of some new treatments, and a regulatory environment that compromises core components of pharmacy benefit design.  Cigna’s path to address these dynamics and offer clients sustainable affordability includes strategies that foster a competitive environment and restructure key stakeholder relationships to value-based models.
