Did You Know...More Than $83 Million Can Be Saved When Nexium® Goes Generic?
More than $100 million is spent annually by our employer groups on the prescription Nexium to alleviate heartburn. The good news is that more than $83 million of that total could be saved once the new generic becomes widely available late this year or early next year. In addition, Univera Healthcare Pharmacy Management has identified a list of 20 drugs that will become generic by the end of this year that could save employers more than $200 million, based on an extrapolation of our drug utilization data.
The overall utilization of generics is already strong among our employer groups. The generic fill rate is 81.8%, which exceeds the national rate of 77%. The result? More savings for you and your employees.
