Value is National CooperativeRx’s main strength, and members recognize this.

• Purchasing Power. We have negotiated extremely aggressive pricing, contract language and service guarantees.

• Not-for-profit and Member-owned. From self-funded employers to insurance trusts and coalitions, our membership is diverse. Our objectives match our members’ objectives because we are member-owned and member-governed. Joining our coalition immediately makes you an owner of the cooperative, and because we’re organized as a cooperative, 100% of our annual earnings are distributed back to plan sponsors in the form of dividends.

• Sharing of Expertise. Our coalition model places a high priority on helping our members navigate the dynamic world of the drug portion of healthcare. This includes objective analysis of prescription utilization and recommendations on effective tools to take advantage of opportunities and mitigate the effect of other marketplace challenges.

• Educational Resources for Plan Sponsors. Educational tools include weekly eNewsletters regarding current PBM news, quarterly webinars for plan design and industry trends and an annual meeting for lectures from the experts.

• Clinical Consultation. An in-house pharmacist will help you tailor objective plan designs to fit specific needs. National CooperativeRx also dedicates funds for the purchase of PBM clinical programs.

• Turnkey Approach to Carving Out Drug Spend. Your group can easily adopt the proven operations and functional aspects of our coalition, without recreating all of the intricate moving parts. It is a proven means to achieve best in class PBM services.

• Benefit Design Flexibility. Plan sponsors have complete plan design flexibility while leveraging all the benefits of group purchasing. With members throughout the lower 48 states, and in Alaska and Hawaii, we can help you design a plan that works where you work.

• National RFP’s. We are currently in our 5th PBM contract. We use our consistent growth to continually improve our pricing, language and services.

• Independent Auditors. The cooperative hires independent auditors to ensure contract terms are met. Auditing can cost a single plan sponsor in excess of $30,000 a year. National CooperativeRx conducts audits on 100% of claims, for all members, with all recoveries going back to plan sponsors. In addition, 100% of rebates and pricing discounts accrue solely to the plan sponsor.

• Transparency. National CooperativeRx prides itself on an open relationship with our PBM vendor that offers transparency in pricing and contractual ability to determine where the dollars are spent.
