What Are Your Health Plan’s New Year’s Resolutions?

Studies for years have shown that more than half of Americans make financial resolutions in the New Year. (Not surprisingly, the other half vow to lose weight.)

New Year’s Resolutions often include business goals. Building efficiency, saving money and increasing value should be at the top of every company’s list for 2019 – including health plans that offer prescription drug benefits.

That’s why it’s smart for busy health plans to team up with an expert who can help them reach their goals.

The team at Tier 1 Pharmacy Consulting offers benefit consulting services for health plans of all sizes to increase their capabilities, cut costs and improve the services they provide for members. We are an authority in Medicare governance and compliance so we can help plans that are already stretched thin ensure they are meeting regulations and avoid Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) audits and other problems that could otherwise arise.

For example, Medicare Advantage enrollees will have from now until March 31 to choose the health plan that is right for them, according to the CMS. That period had previously ended more than a month earlier, on Feb. 14. CMS also has reversed its rule prohibiting formulary design that would expand prescription drug choices for Part D health plans and their members.

Both of these are good things, but are you ready? There is a lot to do first; most health plans don’t have the time, resources or experts on staff that can ensure accuracy.

We can help.

Even though we opened our doors just this year, our founder is a clinical pharmacist with more than a decade of pharmacy benefit management experience. We collaborate and advise our clients so the pharmacy benefits they provide are stronger, always compliant and more cost-effective than ever before.

If you’re new to us, here’s a bigger overview of what Tier 1 can do for your health plan. Click on each link for more information. Many health plans need at least one – if not all – of these series.

We want to help you reach your 2019 health plan resolutions. Contact us today.

Happy New Year!
