Audioconference Overview

The majority of Medicare drug plans' formularies array drugs across four or more formulary tiers, exposing beneficiaries to increased levels of cost-sharing for certain drugs. A new audioconference will explore the types of products commonly or exclusively found on the fourth and fifth tiers of drug plans. Experts from CMS, plans, and patient advocacy organizations will discuss:

  • the premiere and prevalence of four- and five-tiered plans
  • the plans' perspective on why multi-tiered formularies are important for utilization management and patient care
  • government efforts to track beneficiary experiences and
  • the potential effect of increased cost-sharing on beneficiary behavior, drug utilization, and access.

Avalere Health analysts will present a new marketplace review of specialty products and higher cost drugs' formulary placement relative to other medications.


What Is an Audioconference?

It is a live event that includes session handouts, an interactive question and answer period, and access for an unlimited number of participants at each call-in site. However, only one site can be offered per registration. It is impermissible for an organization to purchase one registration and to operate multiple sites through an internal telephone system. During the live Audioconference participants will be able to ask questions and make comments. The Audioconference faculty has agreed to take follow-up questions via email. Medicare Audioconferences are simple, accessible, cost effective and reach a broad audience locally.


Who Should Listen:

Physicians, Nurses, Pharmacists, Chief Executive Officers, Chief Operating Officers, Chief Information Officers and Chief Financial Officers, Privacy Officials, Security Officers, Compliance Officers, Legal Counsel, Patient Account Managers, Billing Staff and Information Services Staff.
