‘Dynamic’ Approach to Consumer Cost-sharing for Prescription Drugs
Access to prescription drugs is a hot-button health care issue.
Committing to policies that encourage lower cost, while ensuring access to clinically appropriate therapies, necessitates a "dynamic" approach to consumer cost-sharing.
"Reward the Good Soldier" is a novel benefit design that lowers consumer cost-sharing for those who diligently follow the required steps to manage their condition but require additional treatment. Supported by the National Pharmaceutical Council, the latest U-M V-BID Center brief, "A 'Dynamic' Approach to Consumer Cost-Sharing for Prescription Drugs," highlights that individuals with clinical conditions often need multiple therapies to achieve desired patient-centered outcomes.
