On Tuesday, July 18, the National Pharmaceutical Council held a webinar entitled “Same Condition, Different Costs: Should Patients Pay Different Amounts?” from       12 – 1pm EST.  Dr. A. Mark Fendrick, MD, Director of the Center for Value-Based Insurance Design (V-BID), spoke alongside Jennifer Graff, PharmD, Cheryl Larson, and Helen Sherman, PharmD.

The webinar addressed differential cost-sharing, when variation makes sense, potential tradeoffs and implications for health plans and employers, as well as identified some of the ethical, legal, and economic issues with co-pays based upon tiers vs. medical appropriateness based on NPC research.
