First Script 2015 Drug Trends Analysis

Coventry is pleased to announce the release of their 2015 First Script® Drug Trends Analysis. The report provides a view into traditional Pharmacy Benefit Management trends that align with other industry reports, but once again shares their fully transparent view into the total pharmacy experience. A significant number of injured workers receive their medications outside the protective oversight available in a traditional retail pharmacy setting. Non-traditional dispensing channels, such as compounding pharmacies and physician dispensing, have created increasing risks to injured worker safety and outcomes overall. This latest analysis focuses on patient safety as a shared responsibility. Given the collective challenges faced in managing pharmacy care in workers’ compensation, this message has never resonated more than it does right now.
