Health Plan Case Study: Optimizing site of care to reduce specialty pharmacy spend.


A regional health plan was looking to reduce their specialty pharmacy spend.

We identified site of specialty infusion care as an opportunity to drive savings.

Specialty infusion drugs cost up to 3 times more in a hospital outpatient facility than other sites.

Infusions outside of the hospital setting can help improve member satisfaction and outcomes.


The plan redirected members to receive infusions at lower cost, in the comfort of home or at infusion suites.

Advance communication was key, including:

Letters to members and providers.

Outreach and coordination from a dedicated nursing transition team.


Site of care optimization led to significant savings over two years:

Growing 131% year over year, for more than $286,000 in savings.
