ALEXANDRIA, Va. (August 23, 2022)—The National Home Infusion Association (NHIA) will hold its first-ever home and specialty infusion payer summit Nov. 2 in Dallas, Texas. NHIA’s goal is to provide education and discuss industry trends to help commercial health insurance plans better leverage home infusion to lower the total cost of care.
This interactive meeting will benefit leaders from commercial payers with responsibilities for benefit structure, network decisions, value-based programing, and specialty infusion policy. Attendees will hear from home and specialty infusion experts and executives about opportunities and challenges facing the industry today and into the future.
“NHIA is proud to facilitate discussions and education aimed at improving understanding of home and specialty infusion services and how they benefit health plans,” said Connie Sullivan, BSPharm, NHIA’s president and CEO. “Many payers already recognize the value of outpatient and home-based infusion therapy and that is reflected in their benefit design. Our goal with this summit is to deepen payers’ understanding of infusion services and share our vision for the future. Infusion providers have untapped potential to support payers in their efforts to provide an array of value-based care choices to their customers.”
“The summit is a bold new step for NHIA, but it’s an important way for the association to share information, generate discussion, and collaborate with the commercial payer community,” said NHIA Board Chair Tim Affeldt, PharmD.
