The Lehigh Valley Business Coalition on Healthcare (LVBCH) has selected ELMC Rx Solutions’ Prescription Drug Cost Containment Services and Keenan Pharmacy Services’ Keenan Pharmacy Clinical Management Program as the coalition’s pharmacy cost savings partners.
Both organizations participated in an extensive review process in which they had to demonstrate better performance, pricing, or enhanced service capabilities, providing employers with increased control over the costs associated with their pharmacy benefits.
Using a market-based approach, the coalition negotiates rates that are exclusive to its members and better than individual employers could obtain on their own.
“As prescription drugs, both specialty and non-specialty, have become increasingly significant drivers of our employer members’ benefit costs, we are pleased to offer LVBCH members the opportunity for additional savings with ELMC Rx Solutions or Keenan Pharmacy Services,” said Carl Seitz, president, LVBCH.
“This will enable our members to better manage costs and risks related to pharmacy benefits. Throughout the pandemic, employers have been facing unprecedented economic challenges, and these programs provide an opportunity for additional savings at a time when it matters most to our employer members,” he said.
