“I would like to say thank you to all of the CCSC faculty for their considerable work on this. As an HTC with in house pharmacy, we are constantly facing tightening employer networks. Employers are told by their PBM’s that an exclusive network will save the employer money. What CCSC has done is to open up the conversation with these employers to show that allowing HTCs in network will save them considerable money not only on the pharmacy side but in overall patient management and outcomes vs. an exclusive specialty pharmacy.”
