State Medicaid programs continue to balance serving eligible beneficiaries and controlling costs. In an environment sharply focused on the cost of drugs, it is increasingly critical to understand the Medicaid pharmacy benefit and the part health plans play in managing that benefit. In a recent webinar, Manatt Health took an in-depth look at how pharmaceutical benefit trends are evolving—and the role of Medicaid managed care.
