Prescription Cost Management

Keeping Prescription Prices Low

With pharmacy expenses amounting to nearly 20% of benefit programs, managing these costs effectively depends largely on pairing each company with the right plan design and benefit manager. Cypress Benefit Administrators takes a proactive approach to pharmacy cost management.

We work with a variety of organizations – including Restat, ClearScripts, Navitus, and WisconsinRX – to ensure that employers are getting the best possible discounts, access, and service through their prescription drug programs. We also have a unique partnership with BidRx/PartnersRx that can save consumers up to 85% off prescription prices. With any of our pharmacy cost solutions, employers can expect to work with aggressive formulary structures that lead to major savings by eliminating high-cost drugs, including mandatory generic utilization, therapeutic subbing, and tablet splitting.

Combining the stability of traditional prescription benefits with information and
cost-based decision-making of the future, our on-line pharmacy auction program is
another revolutionary approach to controlling drug costs by arming consumers with the information needed and options available in purchasing the most cost-effective prescriptions.

Members can register on-line, transfer card information and enter other details, start an auction, and become an informed consumers before purchasing by learning more about similar medications that cost less.
