Understanding covered lives
National and regional healthcare is in constant flux. As health plans, national and state healthcare policy and economic realities evolve, understanding payer realities and how they react to these changes becomes crucially important.

For most managed care professionals, questions abound
What are the key health plan dynamics directly impacting my business?

How can claims data inform and enhance my approach with not only payers but PBMs?

Does my pricing strategy align with each target market?

How can I better interpret and leverage covered lives data by PBM and payer to further expand market share?

Lives data is the bedrock for any sound payer strategy

Commercial, Medicare and Medicaid lives are all crucially important to understand and the more accurate the data, the more on target your managed care strategy will be.

Key is identifying the payers and PBMs that offer the greatest return for partnering.
