Pharmacy Management Services

The relationship with a Pharmacy Benefit Manager (PBM) can be a perplexing
arrangement for any client. Moreover, day-to-day attention must be paid to the vast financial components and the precise language in the contract verifying that the PBM is staying true to their promises. These activities require more resources than any one client may have.

Axia’s goal is to help clients determine whether their current PBM’s financial and service offerings are competitive and properly aligned to meet their objectives and to the overall marketplace for competitiveness. We ask critical questions:

  • Is the PBM delivering discounts, rebates and savings based on contractual agreements?
  • Are the benefit designs and clinical initiatives positioned to effectively manage today’s rising pharmacy costs?
  • Is the PBM recommending the most innovative and appropriate solutions?

Partnering with a market-leading consultative resource will effectively bring meaningful solutions to each area of the client relationship. With significant and proven experience, our service delivers a comprehensive resource providing guidance and solutions that drive results across every facet of pharmacy benefit management.
