Developed to assist organizations capture significant cost savings for the prescription drug component of the employee benefit plan.
The key to controlling benefit plan costs is to engage plan members in understanding how their drug purchasing decisions affect the plan’s overall cost. Plan members who choose not to participate in cost control measures will be directly impacted through higher out-of-pocket expenses.
Generic Drugs cost significantly less than their brand-name counterparts. By introducing a tiered formulary (list of drugs) that encourages employees to choose generics and lower cost therapeutic alternatives, plans can realize significant savings. Adding a central dispensing pharmacy means the benefit plan and plan members can save through reduced ingredient costs and low dispensing fees ($5); both are a product of aggregate purchasing power and reduced overhead.
