Texas often leads the nation in workers compensation cost containment and narcotics legislation. The state recently continued their history of reform by adopting a new pharmaceutical formulary that will reduce the amount of money spent on workers compensation medications and improve the overall health of the state's employees. How does it work? What can you do to remain in compliance?
Broadspire is conducting a webinar to provide answers about the new Texas formulary August 23. Speaking on compliance issues was formulary co-creator Ralph Kendall, PharmD., vice president of clinical services at Healthesystems.
Also Jacob Lazarovic, MD, chief medical officer at Broadspire, will discuss the clinical implications of the formulary and Lynn Sergeant, RN, team manager of utilization management at Broadspire, will be discussing how Broadspire is operationally responding to the formulary.
