2015 Specialty Drug Benefit Report
2015 Specialty Drug Benefit Report
Sponsored by Walgreens.

The survey was completed by a total of 366 U.S. respondents representing an estimated 23.5 million covered enrollees.

As in past years, the 2014 survey reflects PBMI’s ongoing process of monitoring market trends and adjusting the questionnaire to account for new developments. New or modified question topics include goals for specialty medication management, copayments for preferred and nonpreferred medications under the pharmacy benefit, methods used to influence site of care, specialty pharmacy use requirements for medical providers, and anticipated effects of the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Because of these additions and modifications, some results may not be comparable to those obtained in previous
years. The report denotes these items where applicable to enable the reader to interpret trends over time.
