“If you don’t have a clear understanding of what your expenditures are through both the pharmacy and medical benefit, then you’re unable to make wise decisions,” said Dr Gleason

Future trends in specialty pharmacy must analyze specialty drug expenditures via both medical and pharmacy benefit, and then start to apply the pharmacy benefit management and med policy decisions that are integrated.
