Join Jackie Lee for the ongoing Pharmacy Strategic Initiative series, led by Gregory Warren, FSA, MAAA (SVP & Chief Actuary at Optum Advisory Services) who teams up in this podcast with Rebecca Owen, FSA, FCA, MAAA (Actuary at HealthCare Analytical Solutions, Inc.) to discuss the impacts states’ regulatory actions have on prescription drug benefits. Pharmacy is one of the fastest growing components of total cost of care and is currently an active area of state legislation. Understanding regulatory context and various policy environments that actuaries can advantageously affect will further progress in the design and execution of programs to align stakeholder goals, including mitigating total cost of care increases as well as access to care.
