Dermatological conditions, such as psoriasis and atopic dermatitis, can take a toll on employees’ wellbeing and productivity if employees do not obtain adequate treatment. Certain pharmacy benefit practices can exacerbate these conditions by limiting access to prescribed treatments and medical services. These practices, which include step therapy, nonmedical switching, prior authorization, and copay accumulators, can also result in increased costs and the risk of liability for employers, depending upon how such policies are applied.

In this free webinar hosted jointly by the Derma Care Access Network (DCAN) and Aimed Alliance, please join a physician, an attorney, and a benefits manager in examining these pharmacy benefit practices and sensible alternative ways to avoid their risks. We will provide:

  • A practitioner’s overview of physical and psychological impact of dermatological conditions
  • An analysis of case law pertaining to pharmacy benefit policies
  • A discussion of the legislative landscape impacting such policies
  • Recommendations for selecting cost-effective health benefits for your workforce
  • An overview of workplace wellness programs that may benefit employees with dermatological and other conditions


Speakers include:

    • Chris Costello, Managing Director, CBG Benefits
    • Adam Friedman, MD, FAAD, Interim Chair of George Washington University’s Department of Dermatology
    • Catherine Theodore, RN, Regional Director of Health Strategies UnitedHealthcare
    • Mike Walsh, Executive Director, Derma Care Access Network
    • Stacey L. Worthy, JD, Counsel, Aimed Alliance
