We can rely on Walgreens for its clinical excellence and superior customer service – exactly what a pharmacy benefit manager needs in a pharmacy partner.
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) November 04, 2011
PMSI, one of the nation’s largest and most experienced companies focused on workers’ compensation, proudly confirmed its continued relationship with Walgreens to serve payors and injured workers through Walgreens nationwide network of retail pharmacies. In addition, Walgreens also continues as PMSI’s exclusive mail service pharmacy provider. This extends a 17-year network relationship, marked by innovation and system/workflow integration, particularly important as Walgreens plans to move forward without participating in the Express Scripts, Inc. pharmacy provider network in 2012.
“PMSI and Walgreens work collaboratively to create network penetration programs for our customers that proactively contain costs and manage appropriate care for the injured worker,” said Lori Daugherty, President of Pharmacy for PMSI. “We can rely on Walgreens for its clinical excellence and superior customer service – exactly what a pharmacy benefit manager needs in a pharmacy partner.”
PMSI has been serving the workers’ compensation industry for 35 years. PMSI clients save significantly when injured workers fill prescriptions at an in-network pharmacy. With over 7,700 locations across the nation, most with drive-thru pharmacies and more 24-hour pharmacies that all other chain drugstores combined, Walgreens makes it convenient for injured workers to get the medications they need as a preferred in-network pharmacy.
PMSI’s clients will not see a disruption of service as its relationship with Walgreens will continue to allow access to the Walgreens nationwide pharmacy network and mail service fulfillment services.
“We look forward to a long and unique relationship with our partner, Walgreens,” stated Daugherty.
