Our mission is to make a high quality PBM accessible and affordable. To our sponsors/employers, we pledge to continuously improve and innovate our PBM processes, adapting and evolving with the changing healthcare landscape; to maintain fiduciary responsibility while improving the value of services provided; and to be an active partner in achieving better health outcomes for plan participants.

Our Story

Since our founding in 2009 as a clinical pharmacy network in hospitals, we’ve worked closely with clinical teams to make sure patients receive a true continuum of care. We opened our first specialty pharmacy in 2015, and began to establish our current model, focusing heavily on the patient experience and opening up stronger lines of communication with clinicians. In 2018, we opened Vivo Health PBM, offering plan sponsors/employers access to a clinically-driven PBM model focused on delivering more value and better outcomes.
