This toolkit explores the benefits of CMM for individuals and for the employers who pay for benefits. Research published in March 2018 reveals the waste to the system when the wrong drugs are prescribed, drugs are skipped or drugs make people sicker which in turn leads to an estimated 275,689 deaths per year. In financial terms, there’s also a $528 billion price tag attributed to non-optimized medication use.
Use this toolkit to work with your:
• Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs)
• Medical carriers
• Benefit consultants
• Solution providers (PGx, others)
This toolkit was developed with guidance and support from the GTMRx Employer Toolkit Taskforce.
