The Challenge:

about-us

Prescription Care Management (PCM) was created to solve a large, important and costly problem: To counter the aggressive marketing by Pharmaceutical Manufacturers to physicians and end consumers. These marketing practices have created a dramatic increase in the prescribing of high cost medications. There are benefit companies which claim to offer "utilization management and medication management services" or cost-saving programs but they typically rely on the larger margin drugs and rebates from manufacturers to realize a cost savings. In turn, companies and plan members end up paying more for their prescription costs rather than less. With so many different pieces to the prescription puzzle, the plan member has no way of knowing how much the pharmacy benefit program has paid for the prescription as the costs are not tracked, verified, or audited.

The Solution:

Prescription Care Management solves this problem by using state-of-the-art technology to compile prescription alternatives and make recommendations for prescription savings. Our Alternative Prescription System (A.P.S) identifies alternatives which cost less. Using advanced techniques the A.P.S. identifies options under the watchful eye of our Pharmacy team. As a result, PCM can compile prescription alternatives quickly and accurately resulting in cost-savings for both the company and the plan member or employee. Our stand-alone prescription savings program works with every Pharmacy Plan. There is no need to change your existing Plan.

How it works:

Prescription Care Management provides an innovative, no-risk service which allows middle market businesses to significantly reduce their prescription costs. Our ongoing communication with doctors and employees ensures a simple process. A prescription file is reviewed and PCM makes recommendations for high quality, lower cost alternatives. The employee's doctor is contacted with the suggested prescription option. Once the doctor approves the alternative, a call is placed to the employee for approval. When approval is granted by the employee the new prescription is sent by PCM directly to the employees' pharmacy of choice. This enables PCM to provide savings to both the company and the employee. Care… Service… Savings.
