PBMI's Specialty Rx Forum

We're excited to host our first regional forum focused on the topic keeping plan sponsors up at night -- specialty drug trend.


Join us in Chicago on September 12, 2017, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, to hear from specialty pharmacy thought leaders who will address how the specialty pharmacy landscape has evolved and where it's going in the future, an employer panel discussing the challenges they face with specialty pharmacy cost increases, and strategies for managing oncology specialty pharmacy spend.

This must attend forum is a one day investment to gain insights into the ever-evolving landscape of specialty pharmacy management. If you are a plan sponsor, this is the forum for you.

Who Will Benefit from this Forum?

  • Human resource and benefits professionals
  • Pharmacy directors
  • Labor groups
  • Pharmacy consultants
  • PBMs
  • Specialty pharmacies
  • Drug manufacturers
