NEW YORK, Nov. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Mesa Rx, a pharmaceutical cost savings consultancy, announced today the launch
"We're protecting the interests of employers and their employees by making the purchase of drugs a more transparent and honest process," says Alex Schmelzer, Founder and CEO of Mesa Rx. "Since PBMs don't always accept fiduciary responsibility to hold down drug costs, we work to help ensure employers have common-sense plans in place to save on the medications their employees need."
By analyzing an employer's pharmaceutical claims data and leveraging deep industry knowledge, Mesa Rx identifies cheaper alternatives that are of minimal inconvenience to a patient's current regimen. Cost-saving opportunities include, for example, use of generic substitutions and over-the-counter equivalents, as well as changes to an employer's formulary selection and rebate structure. Mesa Rx also works with the employer's health plan and benefit consultant to implement and track these changes.
"We assumed simple saving solutions, such as a generic program, were in place with our current plan. Without Mesa Rx, we would not have realized the many cheaper drug alternatives that exist," said Elie Gordis, Executive Vice President and General Counsel for Ovation Travel Group, a nationwide travel management company. "By eliminating unnecessary drug spending, we're capturing savings that are being invested back into our business and workforce."
