Fall 2022 Direct-To-Employer Summit Join our November 5th virtual event: All About Pharmacy

Join us again as we reconvene our exclusive group of C-suite health system executives for the third time.

Our conversation continues on November 3rd, this time with a special focus on managing pharmacy benefits. The challenges employers face managing the skyrocketing costs of pharmaceutical drugs, particularly specialty therapeutics, have risen to the top of the list of concerns, showing no signs of slowing down.


Presented by:

As we have done in Summits past, we are thrilled to announce our unique fireside chat with Alex Oshmyanksy, MD, PhD, CEO of Mark Cuban's Cost Plus Drug Company. Dr. Oshymanksy has been at the forefront of pharmacy cost innovation for years with the goal of making drugs more affordable, accessible, and transparent. Join us to hear how their company is uniquely dedicated to driving down drug costs, while directly taking on the industry's clear lack of transparency.

We are also delighted to welcome Melinda Baxter, RN, BSN, CCM from RGA Reinsurance Company to the Summit as our featured presenter. She'll address the explosion of ultra-expensive specialty drugs hitting the market and how plan sponsors are responding, including stop-loss considerations.
