More Effective Care Management

Benefits

Combining your medical and pharmacy benefits with us makes care management more effective – leading to healthier employees and additional savings. Integrated Rx and member management gives you the whole picture on claims and utilization, so you can improve the health and safety of employees and mitigate the risk of costly claims.

Integration Means Savings

Integrated care provides higher quality health care for your employees – and it can also save you money.

Based on our assessment, we observe up to a 6% lower medical cost (pmpm) for groups that we manage both medical and pharmacy benefits, compared to those groups who carve their prescription drug plan out to a third party. These savings are consistent with what others have noted nationally, including an evaluation by the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, which showed a 4-8% reduction in medical costs when both medical and pharmacy benefits are managed together within a health plan. 

This integration gives you the whole picture on claims and utilization, so you can improve the health and safety of employees and mitigate the risk of costly claims.
