Employers - Are You Paying More for Your Rx Program than Expected?

Employers, you could be paying more for your prescription drug program than you ever expected, and getting less and less for your money. You deserve the best for your investment, including topnotch service, reporting, claims analysis, and the deep discounts typically offered only to very large entities. So, how can you ensure you're getting the same service as large corporations for a price that you can afford? The answer is simple: Hire a prescription solutions expert to work with your broker or consultant to provide ongoing claims analysis, ensuring you are getting the most for your money!


Don't Pay More For Your Rx Plan than Required
A Pharmacy benefit expert, working with your broker or consultant, can ensure that there is no waste taking place in prescription drug use and that employers are not paying more for their prescription drug plan than required. How we accomplish this is by conducting ongoing daily reviews of all drug claims over $500, looking for errors, opportunities to do patient outreach for diabetes management programs, switching to equivalent but less expensive drugs, and specialty drug assistance programs. This means daily oversight of YOUR drug claims spend by a Pharmacist! We also provide analysis for employers and their brokers/consultants by providing advice and recommendations on different plan designs, clinical programs and the resulting estimated financial savings.

Ensure That Employees are Properly Using their Benefits
While it may appear that when employees aren't using their prescription drug benefits (even when they need them) employers should be saving money on the costs, this actually causes a reverse effect on total healthcare costs. If someone with an illness isn't taking their medications as prescribed, they're not following through on their treatment - therefore, not getting better. This can cause them to become sicker, which in turn can cause them to require more expensive medical treatment and prescriptions - raising your costs. Having a clinical pharmacist constantly overseeing your claims utilization for chronic conditions like diabetes helps to ensure that patients stay on their medications and keep to their overall action plan – including changes in lifestyle and nutrition. This keeps their medical claims costs lower and more money in your pocket.

Increased Rx Access with Lower Cost
The goal of a Pharmacy management specialist is to reduce pharmacy drug spend within prescription benefits plans and to help patients achieve better health outcomes through greater access to appropriate medications. To do this, we work with drug manufacturers, wholesalers, pharmacies, and plan sponsors. This allows us to increase patients’ access to medications by negotiating directly with drug manufacturers or wholesalers to lower costs. We also achieve this by searching for pharmaceutical manufacturer assistance programs that will lower costs of very expensive drugs.

It's Worth Getting Ongoing Claims Analyses!
If you are not or have not reviewed your pharmacy benefits in a while - it’s time! We provide customized prescription solutions for self-funded employers through our coalition contracts with major national pharmacy benefit managers and prescription assistance cards. We put medicine within reach, keeping dollars in employers’ and patients’ pockets.
