Pharmacy Management

Pharmacy Management

Prescription drugs are the fastest growing component of healthcare costs. These costs can be prohibitive, requiring employers to change plan designs and shift even more cost to their employees. This is particularly true for specialty medications that typically represent 50% of drug spend from just 1-2% of drug utilizers. 

Unfortunately, many employers don’t have the purchasing power or market leverage to negotiate better pricing. It’s also challenging for employers to identify and access money saving opportunities. 

Our Alera Group Pharmacy Solutions practice has a dedicated team of experienced, in-house Pharmacy Benefits Management experts. They offer a full range of pharmacy consulting services, including:

  • Prescription drug program evaluations for clients of all sizes and industries
  • Comprehensive RFP management renewal, market check and RFI

  • Data analytics that enable precise financial and clinical pharmacy benefits consulting and reporting, maximizing the plan value and employee dollars
  • All forms of pharmacy benefits auditing, including PBM contract pricing, plan design and clinical
