NABIP-TX Conference: Liviniti Experts Present GLP-1 Impact on Pharmacy Trend and Spend

Liviniti Session Covers Effective Payer Strategies for High-demand, Weight-loss Drugs

NATCHITOCHES, LA, April 12, 2024 – GLP-1 weight-loss drugs are top-of-mind for health insurance agents and benefits professionals gathered in Irving TX this week for the NABIP-TX Annual Conference. In the April 16 General Session, Liviniti experts will lead a discussion on Weight Management Strategies – With and Without GLP-1s, sharing effective payer strategies for managing unprecedented demand for this class of drugs.

Danielle Perrodin, PharmD, Clinical Account Executive and Raj Shiwmangal, Vice President, will share data and insights into the current and future of GLP-1s, and their impact on pharmacy benefit plans. Coverage decisions, clinical management tools, lifestyle considerations and flexible solutions will be covered.

“With the understanding that different payers have different approaches for weight-loss coverage, Liviniti is well versed in crafting flexible solutions,” says Danielle. “For payers who decide to cover GLP-1s, data shows that layering a lifestyle management program along with clinical management can lower costs and support de-escalation of therapy at an appropriate time.” Liviniti partners with Noom’s enterprise unit, Noom for Work, to help U.S. employers optimize outcomes in weight management.

The Texas Chapter of NABIP works to keep members on the cutting edge of new product offerings and requirements in the market. Its annual conference runs from April 15-16. The national NABIP advocates on behalf of benefits and insurance professionals, with members working to obtain insurance for clients who want to balance their desire to purchase high-quality, comprehensive health coverage with the reality of rapidly escalating medical care costs.
