Downers Grove, IL. - Coventry, a leading provider of care and cost management solutions for workers' compensation, has releases part four of its Annual Drug Trends Series. In part four of our series we look at high impact drug classes like topicals, compound kits and combo packs, and specialty medications. While these classes represent proportionately low volume, they can be associated with exponentially significant costs. Recognizing the trends related to such cost drivers can help promote clinically appropriate savings.
Some highlights from the series include:
- Injured workers using topicals have remained steady for four years
- Overall specialty cost nearly doubled over 5 years
- Compound kit/combo packs are emerging as a high impact category
Each part in the series is accompanied by a deeper dive into various related topics to address specific trends highlighted in the drug trend series. To find out more, visit the Coventry Blog Page.
All the editions of the series can be found on our Drug Trends Page.
