Integrating pharmacy with medical benefits provides care managers and clinicians a full picture of members’ health, resulting in more targeted interventions, a single, uniform picture of the member’s health status, and the potential to improve medication adherence and overall health outcomes. In addition, value-based care agreements can be enhanced with carve-in pharmacy benefits, providing more complete contractual care performance metrics and reporting.
