City of Kenosha Gains Control of Pharmacy Spend
In 2018, the city of Kenosha, Wisconsin (with 900 employees and approximately 2,400 plan members) looked to replace its existing pharmacy benefits manager due to unsustainable cost increases. The City implemented BHCG’s best in class strategic partner Navitus Health Solutions on January 1, 2019, taking advantage of BHCG’s preferred contract rates and terms – and the results have been outstanding.
- In the first four years with Navitus as its pharmacy benefit manager, the City has saved more than $3.3 million
- Because of Navitus’ 100 percent pass through of rebates and pharmacy discounts, the City’s rebates increased by 296 percent from 2018 to 2022
- Net plan cost Per Member Per Month (PMPM) decreased by 46 percent from 2018 to 2022
- Due to Navitus’ clinically driven formulary management, total plan costs (before rebates) decreased by 22 percent from 2018 to 2022
Director of Human Resources for the City, Samantha Schuirmann said, “Our move to Navitus Health Solutions in 2019 has been a resounding success. In addition to providing outstanding customer service, Navitus has delivered on its promise of complete transparency and significant cost savings.”
