In the San Antonio healthcare market, HealthComp has partnered with H.E.B. and Baptist Integrated Health Partners to offer a unique solution that can help employers address and control rising healthcare and pharmacy costs. These partners will be discussing their unique offering and how it can achieve significant savings at an upcoming “Lunch and Learn” event (see below for details).
For our blog series, we interviewed Craig Norman, Senior Vice President of Pharmacy at H-E-B, about the partnership, solution and upcoming event. Craig has been with H-E-B since January 2007 and a licensed pharmacist for 36 years.
Craig, you’ll be participating in the “Lunch and Learn” event with HealthComp, sharing information with local San Antonio employers about a unique healthcare solution. What role does your organization play in this solution?
H-E-B offers employers a fresh approach to Pharmacy Benefit Management services by delivering complete transparency and full disclosure. We guarantee 100% pass-through pricing. In addition, we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, we work with employers to customize a plan that meets the needs of their business and employees. The end result? A measurably better pharmacy benefit at a measurably lower cost.
What would you say is unique about this solution?
It’s Texans helping Texans! This solution is not a traditional PBM. No spread pricing, no games. H-E-B does not make any money from this model. We bring true transparency to an industry where it has been long overdue. Furthermore, H-E-B’s Own Brand diabetic supplies provide a low-cost alternative to the high-cost national brands. In addition, we can assist employers with meeting their wellness goals by offering access to our Nutritional and Wellness Services to include immunizations, biometric screening, food tours, nutritional counseling, and other services.
What do employers stand to gain?
We provide employers with programs and products that enable employers to achieve low net cost goals, high clinical quality, and high customer satisfaction, by providing unprecedented choices and services.
What about employees? How does this solution help meet their health and wellness needs?
H-E-B Rxtra Advantage is part of H-E-B’s 114-year-old tradition of giving Texans more than they expect. Our goal is simple – to help promote employees’ health while controlling overall costs. With our many years of experience in the Pharmacy business, employees will have access to the kind of expertise offered by national PBM’s combined with the personalized service they expect from H-E-B.
Thank you, Craig, for participating in our blog series!
