The use of a highly refined formulary structure specific to workers' compensation prescriptions is a critical strategy in allowing payers to more effectively control escalating drug costs and utilization. On September 1st the State of Texas implemented their newly adopted "closed formulary" which is based on the Official Disability Guidelines (ODG) in an effort to implement a structure built on evidence-based guidelines.
This webinar will examine the structure and immediate impact the guidelines may have on prescribing patterns and drug costs while also exploring how insurance payers may benefit from applying a similar approach to their entire pharmacy benefit management program.
