RALEIGH, N.C. Kerr Drug, KDI Health Solutions and HealthTrans have joined up to offer a community-based pharmacy benefits plan aimed exclusively for North Carolina employers. The plan would reward employees with broader prescription benefits and would provide employers with savings in cost.
Highlights of the plan design include a regionally focused dispensing network, preferred pricing and incentives when filling prescriptions at a Kerr Drug pharmacy. In addition, members have access to KDI Health Solutions’ statewide network of clinical pharmacists, who are trained in chronic care management, combining health coaching and optimization of medication therapy.
“Because of the unique collaboration of a retail chain, a healthcare-focused company and a pharmacy benefits manager, the program allows consumers to reap more value from their pharmacy dollars, while benefiting from value-added services that better enrich the care continuum,” said Anthony N. Civello, president and chief executive officer of Kerr Drug. “North Carolina employers and employees alike will benefit from our highly accessible, award-winning network of community-based clinical pharmacists with a decade-long track record of reducing overall healthcare costs through chronic care management, as evidenced by a consistent 4:1 return on investment.”
