2/3rds of Pharmacy Spend to be in Specialty by 2016

I found this chart to be very interesting.  According to the latest CVS Caremark projections, over 60% of healthcare spending on drugs will be on specialty drugs by 2016.  That’s a huge shift!  A lot of it still sits in the medical side which no PBM has really figured out how to manage, but it creates great opportunity for those that can integrate medical and pharmacy claims to analyze the data and leverage it for cost and care management programs.

  1. Just a point of clarification. This appears to be for the top 10 categories, not the total pharmacy drug spend.
