Study reveals $20 billion in untapped generic drug savings

ler outlined four steps consumers, health plans, health professionals and policymakers can take to increase the use of generic drugs:

  • Recognize that using more generic drugs will free up resources to meet other pressing health care needs and help preserve the pharmacy benefit as we know it without impacting quality.

  • Increase awareness of generic alternatives to brand drugs.

  • Adopt pharmacy benefit plan designs that encourage greater use of generic drugs, for example by using a program called step therapy where a generic drug is tried first, before a brand.

  • Enact state laws and regulations that promote the use of chemically equivalent generic alternatives to brand drugs.
