Guaranteed Prescription Savings

E-mail Print PDF

To survive and excel in a competitive business arena, you have to improve efficiency, innovate, develop new products and provide personalized customer service. KRM has done just that and are positioning ourselves to be one of the leaders in managing mail prescription benefits for Employers. One area we have concentrated on is the significant savings that can be achieved in the Mail Service Pharmacy.

The KRM Advantage
KRM has developed a prescription software program that can control and sustain drug costs.

This is very important today, as drug costs are increasing twice as much as hospital costs a year. Eventually, drugs will be the largest part of healthcare costs for employers if current drug costs continue to grow.
KRM has developed a successful program where we are able to educate the Physician to prescribe a generic therapeutic alternative drug for a branded product that does not have a generic available.

What this means is that there are generic medications available that are in the same therapeutic class as a Branded drug whose patent has not yet expired.

Generic Therapeutic Alternative Prescription Program

KRM clinical pharmacy staff identifies brand name medications in a class of drugs (e.g. anti-inflammatory) where there is another branded medication with a generic available. These two medications are therapeutically used to treat the same disease.

A call of fax is sent to the Physician for approval. The Physician reviews the patient's file and calls or faxes the approval or disapproval back.

We are experiencing a 75% return for approvals.

The savings achieved by splitting a higher strength mediction for a lower strength is 45%.

We are seeing a 70% approval by the employee

KRM has developed another program to educate the employee about alternative choices they can make to save them more out-of-pocket money.

This program is mostly successful when the employer participates. KRM supplies supporting data reports to the Employer on a quarterly basis. We produce in house a copy of a drug benefit plan design that shows the employee where he/she can get their best value. We are also available to speak to the employees upon renewal about the prescription program.

KRM MAC's generics in the mail.

We have set maximum allowable costs in our mail service. The average MAC is up to AWP - 82%.

Our biggest difference between RxMPSS and the other vendors is the Generic Therapeutic Program we developed; we are not dependent upon manufacturer's rebates to decide what medications will be preferred. Along with a good prescription plan design, RxMPSS can demonstrate savings to 20% or more and will put that in writing. Guaranteed!
Therapeutic Equivalent Prescriptions Savings Program
Many brand name medications that do not have an FDA approved generic do, in fact, have a therapeutic equivalent medication that does.
Many Physicians are not aware of these therapeutic equivalent generics. MedsBUYMail will contact the Physician and explain and educate the Physician about these medications.
The medications are for the exact same therapeutic disease but are manufactured by a competing drug company.
THese medications have been available for over 5 years and have been shown safe and effective, where as, the newer medications (brands without a generic) have not been on the market long enough to demonstrate their effectiveness.
The savings are tremendous. Please see the Table below.

The KRM Advantage
KRM's secret to success is that we increase generic utilization.
Our formulary, plan design, discount partners and our generic therapeutic program can help our members to achieve a 20% - 40% reduction in drug costs.
  • Our formulary is based upon the best drug for the least cost.
    We are not owned by a pharmaceutical company or an insurance company therefore, we can develop a more cost effective formulary.
  • Our plan designs are developed to provide incentives to the employee to choose a generic drug. Let us develop a more effective prescription plan design for you.
  • Our discount partners, our pharmacy network, allows us to provide a competitive discount at the retail level. 90-day supply can be offered at our retail partners for those employees that do not want to use our mail service.
  • Our generic therapeutic program is unique in that:
    • KRM looks at the brand name drug products that are me-too's. Me-too's are branded drugs made by competing drug manufacturers that provide the same therapeutic value as ones on the market. Most times there is a me-too drug product that has lost its' patent and a generic is available. (e.g. Protonix, Prilosec)
    • There are drug products in a class of drugs (e.g. Cardiac) that will have a generic therapeutic drug for the one that is currently dispensed. KRM provides this information in written form or contacts the employee and the Physician to consider the change.
The Second Step:
1) This information is mailed to the employee or the employee is contacted by one of our service representatives.
2) The physician is also notified by mail and called for the generic therapeutic changes.
3) The financial savings to the employee and employer are shown on the printed material sent to them.
This program is very effective because it empowers the employee and the physician to make a better educated decision when choosing a drug.
