In this edition of Clinical Info Newsletter, we are taking a closer look at generic, specialty and biosimilar medications.  What are they? What are they used for? And, how do they impact overall claim cost? While the utilization of these three medication types ranges from high to low, it’s important to be familiar with all of them to help you better manage and monitor your claims.

As usual, we will wrap up this newsletter with details on new product launches and medication safety communications affecting the workers’ compensation and auto no-fault industries.
