Webinar: the growing utilization of copay accumulator programs
By Corey Ford, MHA, Dale Hanna
Over the past four years, commercial health plans and pharmacy benefit managers have devised copay accumulator programs, which exclude the use of manufacturer-sponsored commercial copay assistance from a patient’s accrual of out-of-pocket (OOP) expenses throughout a plan benefit year. As the use of copay accumulators continues against pharmacy benefit drugs, commercial plans may explore new models targeting medical benefit products.
With large health plans pursuing accumulator models targeting medical benefit products, manufacturers offering copay assistance for those products will need to incorporate accumulator mitigation strategies into their program design.
