Re-thinking Pharmacy Contracting: Financial and Clinical Considerations
The BHC Pharmacy Management Initiative (PMI) continues its discovery of pharmacy purchasing options and pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) to prepare for the 2018 PMI renewal. During the September meeting Melanie Carlson, Principal with Mercer will discuss specialty site of care and best practices.
