who we serve

One Mission.
Your Success.

Whether you’re an employer, broker, TPA, health system or health plan, we  serve alongside you as independent, objective consultants dedicated to one goal — your success.

Self-Funded Employers

As a trusted strategic partner to you and your employee benefits broker, we serve as an impartial advocate to help maximize your pharmacy benefit investment through lowered drug costs and improved member health outcomes. While we can serve clients of most any size, our typical employer clients are national or international and self-funded with at least 1,500 employees.

We understand that prescription drugs are one of the most complex aspects of employee benefits. We can help you and your members better understand your benefits and gain more transparency into what you’re paying for. We find savings because we know what to look for and where to look. And we know how to ensure discounts, rebates and other manufacturer-derived revenues pass through to the ultimate funders of employee health care — the employers — instead of to the PBMs’ profit margins.

We will do the heavy lifting through the PBM RFP process and manage the PBM vendor.

Solutions are customized to your system’s business needs and your member demographics. Some programs have included specialty drug split fill programs that prevented 90-day fills of high-cost drugs with a high potential for abandonment and adding dispense-as-written penalties within the contract terms for drugs with generic equivalents.
