Feb. 3 Prescription Drug Briefing

Innovative prescription drugs are saving lives and improving quality for patients. But as costs for specialty drugs and others continue to increase, certain consumers are left with bigger bills. How are providers and payers balancing the benefits of drugs with higher prices? Why do some drugs cost more? And as new pharmaceuticals slow the progress of chronic diseases, what impact will that have on healthcare costs?

A panel of experts will address these questions and more during a Wisconsin Health News briefing Feb. 3 at the Madison Club.
