Diabetes: Multifaceted Approaches to Address Adherence, Cost, and Improved Outcomes

Diabetes is the leading cost driver for clients, accounting for more than 10% of total drug expenditures, and these numbers continue to rise as the diabetes epidemic continues.  Diabetes is the most expensive therapy class in traditional drug spending, and higher than specialty therapeutic classes such as oncology, multiple sclerosis, and HIV.  Adherence rates for diabetes medications continue to be less than optimal, and overall hemoglobin A1c does not appear to be trending down despite increases in drugs and costs.

This webinar discusses a multifaceted approach on how to manage spend via different utilization management strategies, identify and address adherence issues from a global perspective, improve clinical pathway selections, and increase patient engagement to drive clinical outcomes.

Are You Ready to Comply with 455? How the CMS Regulation Affects You.

A 2015 report estimates that approximately $60 billion of American tax money, or more than 10% of Medicare’s total budget, was lost to fraud, waste, abuse and improper payments in 2014.

Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) strategy for ridding the system of fraud has been to move away from a pay-and-chase system to a preventive model. Identifying high-risk providers on the front end is easier than tracking and unraveling complicated transactions on the back end.

To help reduce the risk of fraud, waste and abuse, CMS has established requirements for Medicaid programs to validate their networks. All Medicaid PBMs, especially Managed Medicaid PBMs, may bear the brunt of this risk assessment.

This webinar explores the new CMS regulation, the impact on PBMs, and how PBMs can use data, analytics and advanced technology to be in compliance.

Learning objectives:
  • Understand the scope of the 455 regulations as it relates to PBMs
  • Explore the kinds of data available to screen and validate providers
  • Evaluate data solutions to comply with 455 requirements and network validation
