Paramount Rx, a full-service prescription benefits manager focused on consumer-driven health care, today announced its platinum sponsorship of the National Council for Prescription Drug Programs’ (NCPDP) Annual Technology & Business Conference. The event will take place May 4-7 at The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona.
In addition to its sponsorship, Paramount Rx will be on hand at the event to showcase the benefits of an innovative prescription drug discount program. Bridging the relationship between employers, consumers and the pharmacy industry, prescription discount card programs have an essential place in the health care system – especially as the cost of prescription medications continues to rise as health care reform rolls out across the country.
“The NCPDP annual conference gives the industry a chance to address the delivery of pharmacy services and strengthen patient access to health care,” said Ken Hammond, CEO of Paramount Rx. “We value this opportunity to come together as industry leaders and collaborate on how to strengthen access to affordable prescription medications and enhance consumer experience in an ever-evolving health care landscape.”
As the health care and insurance industries change, a number of companies are adopting a consumer-driven health care model that utilizes a discount prescription card benefit. Paramount Rx has established programs with a variety of businesses and organizations, from non-profits like the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA) to companies like IBC Bank and its 85+ communities across Texas and Oklahoma.
To date, Paramount Rx programs have helped users save millions of dollars off the retail price of prescription medications. Paramount Rx discount cards require no deductibles or maximum benefit levels and no exclusions for pre-existing health conditions. Paramount Rx also hosts online tools and resources to help users locate one of its 54,000 participating pharmacies across the nation, research drug pricing and availability and access mail order services.
