WASHINGTON, Dec. 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --- Atlantic Information Services, Inc. (AIS) -- AIS, publisher of industry-leading newsletters Health Plan Week, Drug Benefit News and Specialty Pharmacy News has just released 2000-2007 Survey Results: Pharmacy Benefit Trends & Data. For the past eight years, AIS has been surveying pharmacy benefit management companies of all kinds and compiling the results to track trends in this volatile industry. Trends revealed by this survey include the growth of mail-order pharmacy and generic utilization, as well as the emergence of specialty pharmacy as a new cost category and the three-tiered pharmacy benefit as the industry standard.

This book and CD companion provides an in-depth look at who the players are ... what services they offer ... what benefit and formulary structures they promote ... and what cost trends they've experienced. Pharmacy Benefit Trends & Data features:
