About the Course
The Pharmaceutical Facts, Policy and the Market Today has been developed by NABIP to educate, explain, and discuss the many parts of prescription drugs and their impact on America’s healthcare and health benefits. This course will explore the interaction between stakeholders, clinical and economic positives, obstacles that affect those that profit, and population that rely on prescription drugs. Students will gain a foundation of the industry, role of prescription drugs as a means of providing medical treatment, payment of those benefits and predictions for the future.
- The Evolution of Drug Regulations: A focus on the evolution of drugs, regulations, the industry’s power in setting the table for how new drugs enter the market, and how pricing works.
- The Modern Drug Market: How the supply chain is for and against consumers and payers, and the role that insurers and self-funded plans have in the payment of medication.
- The “Secrets” of Prescription Drug Costs: A look inside health care spending and what we expect the near-term future to look like in terms of plan design and payment.
