Better benefits start here

Prime integrates with health plans for total drug management — no matter where medicine happens or how it’s reimbursed. We’re member-centric, provider-aligned and data-driven. And we’re here to help make better, more affordable care easier for everyone.


Making pharmacy’s future brighter

Prime and Magellan Rx have joined forces to offer next-generation pharmacy solutions and a truly differentiated experience while doing what’s right for everyone we serve.


Integrated pharmacy benefits drive more savings

A recent two-year analysis conducted by Prime and one client shows an average savings of $422 per member per year on medical costs, 13% lower odds of emergency room visits and 17% lower odds of hospitalization.¹


Helping employers and members manage the evolution of specialty

Specialty drugs drive significant costs up for employers and their employees with certain needs and conditions. With costs continuing to rise, it’s never been more important to help your employer groups develop a strategy to make the most of their specialty spend across pharmacy and medical benefits.


Driving greater use of biosimilars to help lower drug costs

As part of our total drug management strategy, we actively promote evidence-based use of biosimilars (and other low-cost drug options) that are endorsed by our Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee.

Executive perspectives

At Prime, we’re focused on redefining our company and how we deliver integrated drug management to support the needs of clients and the members they serve. Dave Schlett, President, PBM Solutions, shares his thoughts about what we accomplished in 2022, and where we are headed in 2023.
