As a result of pharmacy benefit complexity, the rising cost of prescription drugs and underperforming contracts, our TPA client searched for a partner to help them create and manage a complete pharmacy division that offered year-round support and powerful savings to their employer-group clients.
- Heavy administrative burden managing multiple PBMs, claim files and issue resolution
- No dedicated pharmacy experts to hold PBMs contractually accountable for payments and discounts
- No way to clearly compare savings/disruption/options for PBMs at renewal
- No effective strategy to show and spread sheet multiple PBM proposals
The TPA selected CoeoRx, an independent Rx benefits powerhouse with the largest network of PBM contracts and relationships, to reprice and optimize its pharmacy benefit contracts.
- Conducted a reprice assessment of 6 different PBMs using NeuroSQL, our proprietary PBM reprice and comparison tool
- Analyzed 57,579 lives between those contracts
- Presented a side-by-side assessment with all potential savings packaged together in one easily digestible view
What We Uncovered
- Initial savings for full book of business (57,579 lives) $14.4M for one year.
- Savings potential $43.2M for a 3-year deal.
Year-Round Services Provided to Client
- Expert pharmacy support to minimize disruption, ease integration challenges, and remove key burdens from HR teams and plan participants
- Clinical expertise to protect employer clients from unexpected shifts in employee claims and high Rx spend
- Meticulous reporting and trend management to uncover more cost-containment opportunities
