Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 19, 2012

Connolly, Inc. has published a white paper that provides advice to assist healthcare payers in cutting costs and generating savings. The white paper, entitled Reducing Specialty Drug Expense Through Identification and Elimination of Claim Payment Errors, gives specific insight into how post-payment recovery audits can help reduce specialty drug expenses.

Collective specialty drug spend continues to rise rapidly, as it has for several years. In fact, specialty drug costs grew more than 17% in 2011, while spend on traditional drugs remained flat. In 2012, it is anticipated that for the first time ever, a specialty drug will be the best selling pharmaceutical in the world.

Payers recognize that no single strategy can manage this increasing spend, but rather that strategies must be used in combination, said Michael Wilson, Connolly Director of Marketing. This paper examines a strategy that is sometimes overlooked, yet which is very effective the elimination of payment errors through recovery auditing.

Specialty drug spend is truly a unique area within healthcare, and as such requires special attention, said Cory Deagle, Connolly Principal, who leads a team of healthcare auditors and collaborated on the white paper. Obviously, the drugs themselves are incredibly complex, clinically, but the billing and administration also presents significant challenges. Working with many of the top US payers, our experience has shown that focusing on accurate payment will add dollars back to the bottom line and reduce future spend.

The white papers release coincides with Connollys participation in a conference presented by AHIP (Americas Health Insurance Plans). It takes place June 20 23, in Salt Lake City, UT. Connolly attends the conference each year to meet with clients and share its extensive knowledge of healthcare trends and issues.
