Helping Our Members Save
Group Purchasing Benefits
The Pittsburgh Business Group on Health offers a sweeping array of exclusive Rx group purchasing options for employer-members – all designed to help member companies achieve cost containment, improve the quality of purchased services and drive efficiencies and performance in their health plans, benefits and other related programs.
The plan is on track to save PBGH employer-members more than $75 million over a three-year period, with an additional $25 million savings slated via the Market Check initiative.
Designed exclusively for PBGH employer-members, working with CVS Health aligns the united buying power of fellow employers and more than 140,000 participants.
This program helps companies achieve the objective of getting critical insight into employer prescription drug spend, achieving significant Rx savings, and market checks. Benefits include clinical solutions to support targeted population intervention and marketing, specialty care management nurse support and PBM – a dedicated member client support team.
Pharmacy benefits are being revolutionized by ensuring employers and plan members save money by obtaining quality, cost-efficient prescriptions through the best channel and supported by specialized support teams to drive clinical solutions via intervention and monitoring.
EmpiRx Health’s formulary and clinical programs, which are aligned with the financial interests of the company and the member, preserve benefit dollars by ensuring the lowest net cost and improved patient health rather than maximization of rebates.
Rx Clinical Management
The PBGH Clinical Management program engages physicians and members directly to ensure the best possible drug therapies are chosen based on their clinical effectiveness and overall cost to patients and the plan.
The program is an unbiased source of information for physicians and provides a guaranteed 1 to 1 ROI for employers (e.g., 5%-10% cost savings) via an automated care management system that assesses prescriptions and identifies appropriate lower cost alternatives.
