Specialty pharmacy utilization management programs and 30-day supply claims may improve patient outcomes, reduce waste
Date:4/4/2013

,730 calcineurin claims. Members were then tracked for 365 days to determine if they switched drugs and if waste occurred. Researchers found average days of waste per claim were 44 days wasted among patients receiving a 90-day retail supply, 16 days waste for those receiving a 30-day retail supply, and three days wasted for those receiving a 90-day supply by mail. Although claims associated with waste were rare, when waste was found it was 10 times more likely to be a retail 90-day supply claim then a retail 30-day supply or mail 90-day supply claim (p<0.01).

"Medication waste is a continued concern of ours, especially in regard to specialty drugs requiring frequent drug switches and supplies beyond the traditional 30 days," said Gleason. "Often, treatment will stabilize for patients after one year, so moving to mail order could potentially reduce the chance of waste and may improve adherence."
