Twenty per cent of claimants drive nearly 80 per cent of drug plan costs

This is a good, short note on the cost of high cost drugs and the effect that the employees and families claims have on plans.  Amongst our Mainstay clients, we see about 15% of our customers have claims over $10,000 a year

Representing 20 per cent of claimants, members with high-cost chronic conditions drive almost 80 per cent of plan costs with an average annual drug spending that is 15 times that of other claimants, says the report.
