When multiple manufacturers produce products that provide the same clinical results, utilization is a result of price and marketing strategy. With the advent of popular brand name drugs losing patent protection, employers and other payers are facing an unprecedented opportunity to manage costs. This presentation will review some of the drugs that have recently become available in their generic form and identify emerging management strategies. We will address some of the most frequently asked questions such as formulary status, claim pricing methodology such as MAC and discounts, rebates, and quality controls.
