Drug Pooling and Supplemental Drugs


Operating outside of the boundaries of the CDIPC pooling solution for insured plans, self-insured (ASO) plan sponsors have had to get creative in addressing the challenges of escalating specialty drug costs and stop-loss premiums. What plan sponsors are doing with plan-specific predictive analytics, custom plan designs, and disease-state based approaches to managing high-cost drugs will be examined at this event.

The Canadian Drug Insurance Pooling Corporation’s efforts to maintain the viability of drug plans when they are hit with one time and recurrent high cost drugs and industry trends, best practices, and strategies will also be examined at this event. Attendees will learn how pooling works, what it is and isn’t, and, using historical data, gaze into a crystal ball to look into the future.

As well, what’s helping shape tomorrow’s pharma story and impacting drug plan sustainability will be examined by Sun Life Financial. Best practices and strategies to mitigate the underlying risks associated with trends like the rise of specialty drugs to treat rare and common diseases and the effects of chronic conditions will be presented.
Join our expert speakers including Dan Berty, Executive Director from the Canadian Drug Insurance Pooling Corporation (CDIPC), Anjila Arora, Director, Pharmaceutical Benefits from Sun Life Financial and Mike Sullivan, CEO & Co-Founder from Cubic Health at the Benefits and Pensions Monitor Meetings & Events ‘Drug Pooling and Supplemental Drugs’ half-day session on October 17th in Toronto.
