Who Should Participate
In recent years, there has been tremendous innovation with the development of new pharmaceuticals and therapies that cure and/or extend the life of those with life threatening diseases. These pharmaceuticals and therapies continue to provide significant benefits to patients but they are also creating significant hardship for individuals, employers and states due to their high cost. In 2014, specialty drugs represented only one percent of all prescriptions but represented 31 percent of all drug related spending.
