A new way to manage specialty drug spend

Specialty medications are costly, hard to manage and are often covered under both medical and pharmacy benefits. In addition, the volume of new drugs makes it difficult for providers to keep up with the best treatment options and plan sponsors struggle to control costs.

Specialty Fusion dynamically analyzes dozens of value levers on both medical and pharmacy benefits to recommend the optimal benefit, site of care and drug choice based on clinical and financial factors. This results in improved patient experiences at a lower cost of care.
