Nexus Insurance Managers selects RxResults’ Specialty Drug Management to mitigate rising pharmacy benefit costs

Little Rock, Arkansas — It is no secret that healthcare costs in the United States are out of control. Specialty drugs are proving to be a primary contributor to the expense.

  • Specialty drug treatment regimens can reach upward of $100,000 per year.
  • The cost of specialty drugs is expected to be 50% of the total pharmacy spend by 2018.
  • 70% of the drugs approved by the FDA in 2014 were in the specialty category.

RxResults Specialty Drug Management program is poised to revolutionize the way specialty drug costs are managed.  Through an evidence based medicine approach, RxResults can provide clinically sound, member-centered and cost effective prescription benefit risk management.

“We have evaluated several solutions related to the pharmacy spend, and we will feel RxResults provides a very timely one for Specialty Drug utilization”, says Kenneth Walker, a principal at Nexus Insurance Managers. “Their solution is affordable and addresses the key concern about plan control and effective drug therapy, which in turn, will drive a good ROI”.  Walker added, “Nexus is including the Specialty Drug Management solution with all stop loss quotes and is actively marketing the services to our TPA and Broker relationships.”

“RxResults is uniquely positioned to manage specialty drug utilization” says Tery Baskin, President and CEO of RxResults. “Through our relationship with University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) College of Pharmacy, RxResults continuously reviews the latest studies and research on specialty drug outcomes and uses this information to help ensure these expensive medications are appropriate for each patient and the stage of their health condition.”

RxResults’ Specialty Drug Management solution provides:

  • Prior Authorization services to make sure the right members that meet the right clinical criteria get the right drugs at the right time in order to attain the best health outcomes;
  • Analytics that deliver transparency and actionable insights; and
  • Assistance with benefit design to be sure the coverage criteria for specialty drugs is evidence-based.

Solon Webb, also a principal at Nexus Insurance Mangers added, “RxResults gives Nexus and our clients a proactive approach to managing these dollars.   With drug manufacturers spending millions on advertising and offering the distributors (often PBM’s) incentives to promote the drug, we needed an independent, unbiased organization to help protect our clients and their members.”
