PDCI releases new issue of PDCI Market Access INSIGHTS, featuring research and opinion on the evolving state of private health insurance in Canada.
VOLUME 2, ISSUE 1
We share detail on our updated Census of Insurers, providing more depth and capacity for analysis on lives covered by private insurers and PBM’s. PDCI’s Paul Henricks offers insights about the possible impact on lives covered of pending relationship changes.
Mark Fleming summarizes a discussion panel with community pharmacists about private drug plans and how plan design has impacted their ability to care for patients. Readers will be particularly interested in the comments about patient programs and how pharmacists feel about both the business impacts and quality of care issues.
Our Q&A features Denise Balch offering an update on simplifying prior authorization. Since the release of her report a year ago, prior authorization is still a complex mix of technology, paper forms and prior authorization rules. But, as Denise reports, there are some positive signs for moving forward.
