DUBLIN, Ohio and ST. PAUL, Minn. — A healthcare services company will continue to serve as the primary pharmaceutical supply chain partner for a pharmacy benefit manager's mail-order business.
Cardinal Health said it has renewed a three-year agreement with Prime Therapeutics and will continue to deliver pharmaceutical distribution services for PrimeMail, the Prime Therapeutics' mail-order pharmacy. Prime Therapeutics currently serves nearly 17 million members through Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans, employer and union groups, and third-party administrators, according to the company.
Cardinal Health also said it will continue to offer Prime Therapeutics additional supply chain optimization services to help improve the latter's operational efficiency.
"We look forward to continuing to deliver the kind of flexible and innovative pharmaceutical distribution services that help Prime Therapeutics to efficiently and effectively serve its patients' medication needs," said Jon Giacomin, president of Cardinal Health's U.S. pharmaceutical distribution business. "This renewed agreement is an excellent example of our commitment to building mutually beneficial customer relationships that enable us to grow our pharmaceutical distribution business while also improving the overall costs of health care."
