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. Visit http://www.aishealth.com/Products/dru.html for more information.

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:

-- Hundreds of charts, tables and graphs developed from various

data fields in the survey.

-- A complete directory of PBMs, PBAs, SPPs and related companies

with company descriptions, business volume metrics and contact names.

the pharmacy benefit, including our annual surveys of:

analysis and more raw data, and

* Managed care organizations (MCOs) --- with data on their annual

drug spend for the entire book of business.

which PBM vendors and programs are effective for managing pharmacy

costs
