Debbie Stern, RPh, president, Rxperts, Inc, says that presently, there is an increasing focus on medical benefit management. This includes everything from provider reimbursement to finding the best site of care for administering or dispensing medications to patients. As for the future of specialty pharmaceutical management, the process is still evolving.

“It really depends where the payer is in their strategy. We may see, for some plans, they might start integrating their benefits more consistently,” Ms Stern says. “They may start looking at how they can develop new benefit styles that are going to accommodate the [market] growth.”
