A Few Medco Updates

First, Medco published their Drug Trend Report for 2009 a few days ago.  I am just starting to read it and will post my comments in the next few days.  [BTW – I am the #1 Google hit if you query “drug trend report”.]

Second, they recently posted a video of Mark Spitz talking about Medco’s website and savings money on prescriptions.

Then, they also presented a few new studies at ISPOR this past week which showed:

  • Asthma patients taking a statin were less likely to have a asthma related hospital or ER visit.
  • Patients with MS (multiple sclerosis) were more adherent when using specialty.

I think I’m going to try to learn more about the MS study.  Did it vary by age, gender, plan design, pharmacy type, stage of disease, etc.
