As a clinical PBM, we’re in the middle,
but we’re not the middle man.
Unlike most PBMs that began as drug distributors, our origin is clinical. Our PBM puts pharmacists at the center of clinical integrated care. We believe in the value personal attention brings to every prescription. In our experience, customized care leads to better health outcomes for patients and added value for our clients.
The difference is, we’re
a clinically-driven PBM.
Vivo Health is the only PBM built from an in-house, clinically-driven approach to pharmacy benefits. Our process involves partnering with prescribers to get the best available care to patients sooner; supporting patients to ensure better adherence; and working with clinicians to formulate effective therapies, including generics and equivalents. Our goal is to provide continuous clinically appropriate care for each and every individual patient.
The right treatment, at the
right time, at the right price.
Barriers to care can lead to adverse patient outcomes, so we minimize them. We know value isn’t only about cost, and that long-term effect determines true cost. We use every customer touch to improve outcomes while reducing waste. We continuously improve our up-processes to take into account the latest clinical criteria and cost. And we’re working towards a prior authorization process to ensure continuity while minimizing barriers such as paper work.

Resolving to control drug costs: Your PBM contract really matters
The new year and decade bring a clean slate, and outside of personal resolutions, many benefit and HR managers are looking for ways to improve their benefit plans. With no new legislation in sight to help reduce the cost of drugs, employers continue to be challenged to find savings in pharmacy benefits.
Value-based PBMs are the future.
We’re working on it.
We stand for simplicity, cost savings and better health outcomes. As a 100% transparent and pass-through PBM, we pass any rebates or discounts directly to our clients. Our compensation is based on fees negotiated with our clients.
