Pharmacy Benefit Management

Prescription drugs cost an average of 2.5 times more in the United States than they do in 32 other countries, with drug spend accounting for nearly 20% of group health benefit plan cost.

At Conner Strong & Buckelew, we are committed to helping our clients address this growing concern. As part of that commitment, we offer access to one of the largest pharmacy coalitions in the nation, CSB Rx Advantage, as a value-added service for our clients. The goal of CSB Rx Advantage is to provide our clients with stronger negotiating power, greater purchasing power, expert support, and competitive pricing to decrease their annual pharmacy spend.
