A moderately sized health system stands to gain $20 million to $30 million in new annual profits by adding its own specialty pharmacy.
Employee RX Benefit Plan
Hospitals that have a specialty pharmacy have been able to reduce their specialty medication expenses for employees by up to 20 percent when insourcing.
