Summary Of Drug Trends (Prime’s Report’s Out)

Prime Therapeutics published their Drug Trend Report yesterday.  I haven’t had time to read it yet, but I pulled their total trend numbers and aggregated them into charts with the previously reported numbers from other PBMs.  (As always, you can see detailed summary’s from Adam Fein and I on most of the reports.)

Additionally, here’s a summary from last year.  AND, as always, don’t forget that these aren’t apples to apples.

(NOTE: Lower trend is better implying that the PBM is doing a better job at managing costs for their clients although as I’ve argued there may be some clinical reasons for trend going up that are good – e.g., improved adherence, identification of pre-diabetics, addressing primary adherence.)
