Description

THE HIGH COST OF DRUGS & THE IMPACT ON HEALTH CARE PREMIUMS

Featuring Sunshine Moore of America’s Health Insurance Plans & Norm Thurston, Ph.D., Utah State House of Representatives. The escalating costs of drugs continue to have a substantial impact on the pricing of health care premiums. Spending on prescription medications is higher in the US, per capita, than in any other country in the world, according to a recent Journal of the American Medical Association study. And, the report said, those costs are “largely driven by brand-name drug prices that have been increasing in recent years at rates far beyond the consumer price index.” Can anything be done about it? Why does this concern you? This 3-hour continuing education forum will focus on these and other challenges faced by Utah’s health plans. Don’t miss this educational event which will surely assist in your understanding of why premiums continue to increase in the U.S.
