As states struggle with the increasing cost of prescription drugs, they are testing various alternative payment models (APMs) to curb costs. The Oklahoma Health Care Authority is a national leader with four APMs through direct contracts with pharmaceutical manufacturers. These contracts are each based on a specific drug, agreed upon outcomes, and approaches to measurement. Since Oklahoma began implementation, Michigan and Colorado had State Plan Amendments approved to advance similar APMs. Join this NASHP webinar to learn more about these states and their experiences engaging in APMs.
The moderator is NASHP Executive Director Trish Riley. Speakers include:
- Terry Cothran, Director, University of Oklahoma College of Pharmacy, Pharmacy Management Consultants
- Cathy Traugott, Pharmacy Manager, Colorado Department of Health Care Policy & Financing
- Trish Bouck, Pharmacy Management Division Director, Michigan Department of Health & Human Services
- Rita Subhedar, State Assistant Administrator, Michigan Department of Health & Human Services
