PBMI 2019 National Conference

 



Thank you MaxorPlus for sponsoring this year's Keynote Speaker.


Thank you to all our sponsors and exhibitors.  We look forward to a great event!

Highlights

PBMI Members!

We’re looking forward to seeing you all next week at our 24th Annual National Conference in sunny Palm Springs, California, March 4-6, 2019.

Thomas E. Price, MD, 23rd Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), will set the tone for the conference with a keynote explaining how proposed regulations, supply chain disruption, and innovation are impacting the future of healthcare. The keynote is sponsored by MaxorPlus.

Over three days, we’ll be taking a deep dive into the many facets of the shifting pharmacy landscape. More than 70 industry subject matter experts will be speaking in over 40 sessions to share their insights on the industry. As a bonus, attendees will not only hear candid discussions from employer panels, but this year we have added another key stakeholder, patients, to give us an inside look into their personal healthcare journeys.

At the conference we’re also launching our 2019 Trends in Specialty Drug Benefits report, sponsored by Walgreens and AllianceRx Walgreens Prime.  We’ll share highlights of the report at the event, but you can also sign up for a webinar to hear a comprehensive overview of the results of the report.  Check out our upcoming events below to reserve your seat.

Online registration is still open, but hurry, it closes March 4th. Click here to register.

See you next week!
