Specialty Pharmacy’s Growing Role in Medicaid

The May 2015 edition portrays the distribution of all Medicaid prescriptions by their unit cost corridor. These slides quantify the rapid growth in Medicaid prescriptions with a cost per prescription above $1,000. The high-cost medications in this corridor represented 1.3% of pre-rebate Medicaid pharmacy spending in 2005 but have increased to 28.4% of Medicaid pharmacy spending in 2013 and 32.6% of Medicaid pharmacy spending in 2014.
