Uncovering the true cost of your pharmacy benefit
Consistently delivering low PMPM
*Than national benchmarks
Employing multiple drug management methods
The most effective PBMs help deliver the best patient outcomes at a lower cost. Prime takes a holistic approach to help ensure our formularies include the best options, promote evidence-based biosimilars and offer industry-leading utilization programs.
Some PBMs prioritize high-priced drugs over lower-cost options due to manufacturer rebates. But Prime focuses on the lowest-cost, most clinically effective options to keep costs low and improve health outcomes.
Specialty drug management
Prime is focused on improving access to low-cost specialty drugs by developing innovative products and driving the use of evidence-based biosimilars.
Utilization management (UM)
We help our clients choose UM programs that not only provide their members safe, cost-effective medicines, but also address industry-wide problems like inappropriate use and fraud, waste and abuse.
