What are the main sources of savings that are being achieved by moving into a captive vs. fully-insured?

There are three main sources of savings when transferring to a captive model from fully-insured:

  • Reducing volatility of premiums. No marking up of claims.
  • ACA tax savings. Fully insured employers pay $500-$600 in ACA rates annually, per employee.
  • Carving out your pharmacy plan, on a Mier fee basis. No drug markups.

What is a PBM?

1. A Prescription Benefit Manager (PBM) assists employers with networking pharmacies,  aggregating rebates, managing formularies and much more!
2. Makes you compliant with Healthcare Reform with gated accumulators medical and prescriptions
3. Access to retail discounts
4. Access to rebates

As an employer, why would I need a PBM? Can my company buy direct from the wholesaler?

For access to rebates, PLUS you cannot buy directly from wholesalers. More importantly, with this volume of business, buying 1,000 is much different than 1,000,000 prescriptions 

Is there a clear way to verify if a PBM is processing claims as contract indicates?

Yes, a pass-through PBM can provide real-time auditing and access to contracts.

Do you provide full transparency regarding rebates and spread pricing?

Southern Scripts is the most transparent PBM in the Country. We itemize rebates and never practice price gauging.

What do you think about a PBM deal that guarantees an average script cost?

This puts the monetary risk on the PBM. We think this is the smoke and minors process currently in play with the industry!

Do you keep any pharmaceutical manufacturer's dollars, rebates, ect.?

Southern Scripts keeps none. Not a penny.

What is the truth behind rebates? Why can't we get to a simplified lower cost model?

Rebates are used to leverage and ensure market share and access through formulary placement.
