At 0.1%, utilization is the main driver or trend, with unit cost at -1.7%. WellDyne clinical programs focus on the right drug at the best price. We engage with members and prescribers to ensure that all planned therapy escalations take into account a view of member adherence data and follow national standards of care. In 2020, 42% of pharmacy spend was concentrated in two therapeutic classes: 25% of spend was for inflammatory conditions and 17% for diabetes.
