How it works
Pharmacy is often your employees' most-used benefit, so it's important to provide them with the best experience possible. To ensure excellence, we've focused on five key areas to better support you and your employees.
We offer a large network with more than 64,000 pharmacies nationwide, and our goal is to maximize savings and convenience for you and your employees.
We promote clinically sound, cost-effective medications for positive therapeutic outcomes. To understand what the most effective medications are we have joint committee reviews and extensive monitoring. We also evaluate clinical effectiveness, side effects and offer low-cost benefit options.
We're continuously evaluating the medical necessity, appropriateness and efficiency of health care services and medications to ensure their effectiveness. We do this through programs like step therapy, prior authorization and quantity limits, which has amounted to more than $310 million in savings in 2019.
Specialty pharmacy care
We provide management of medications that are either high cost, high complexity or high touch. This helps reduce your costs and improve your employees' health.
Medication adherence can have a positive impact on the quality and length of your employees' lives. We encourage our pharmacy members to take their medications as prescribed. This is communicated through automated text and email reminders for prescription refills, consolidated pharmacy fills and coupons and copay assistance.
