Clinical programs that focus on efficacy and safety first

Our goals: efficacy, value, quality. Here are our guiding principles for clinical support, philosophy, and plan design: 

  • Efficacious and safe 
  • Appropriate utilization 
  • Minimize misuse 
  • Appropriate medications 
  • Flexible clinical strategy  

The Prescryptive formulary

Most PBMs would turn their nose up at the thought, but the benefits of a low net-cost strategy add up: 

  • Promotes appropriate use of highly effective lower priced drugs as first line utilization
  • Eliminates unnecessary waste for higher cost products
  • Supports the use of lower cost drugs with the same or better efficacy
  • Significantly enhances member’s ability to make the right choices for themselves, lower their cost, and the plan’s cost

Stop chasing rebates and choose emPBM: a new kind of PBM that saves self-funded employers and their employees money through a formulary strategy that’s transparent, effective and empowering.

    experience has exceeded all expectations


I really like the partnership I have with Prescryptive. The combination of the platform, plan design, and formulary works well in incentivizing employees to choose lower cost drugs.

Current client 

Prescryptive’s transparent approach to benefit management makes us feel confident that the issues discovered during the transition from our former PBM will never happen again.

The new Prescryptive benefit saves on my out-of-pocket costs for my son’s transplant medications. We’re finally down to what we were paying back in 2014. Yippee!
