Packed Prescription Savings: 3 Wins for Employees

May, 17 2022


How many times do you direct your clients to GoodRx or other discount programs? Wouldn't it be better to drive them to a benefit the employer is providing – and you’re already promoting during open enrollment?

That's why we've just boosted every freshbenies membership with more powerful prescription savings.

Here's 3 ways this upgrade empowers employees...

1. MORE PBMs

freshbenies Prescription Savings is now packed with 3 PBMs - with more to come.

Over the last several years, top PBMs have been purchased by health insurance companies. Recent research shows three companies dominate the PBM market with a combined 79% of all prescription claims in 2020 - and each are owned by a health insurance company.

Who are the three?

  1. CVS Caremark (Aetna): 34%
  2. Express Scripts (Cigna): 24%
  3. OptumRx (United Health): 21%

The freshbenies membership includes two of the top three, Express Scripts and OptumRx. Our third PBM, SS&C, is an independent PBM not affiliated with any insurance company.

2. MORE options

With these added PBMs, our member Rx pricing tool quickly locates the best deal across multiple savings networks. One drug search shows pricing at local pharmacies, as well as a more robust home delivery option. PLUS, we show Generic & Brand pricing on all searches.

3. MORE savings

Most of the time, freshbenies matches or beats other popular programs outside the benefits package. Plus, you'll drive more savings by pointing employees to a tool packed with additional services that cut healthcare costs and confusion - all within a benefit their employer provides.

I didn’t want to go to urgent care or the ER. Using Doctors Online in my freshbenies membership, I went online to ask a doctor. The doctor responded and said to check my blood pressure. He followed up with the next day to make sure my numbers were OK. By then, the feeling was starting to go away. He told me if it persists to contact my doctor. It was great that I didn’t have to go somewhere and wait forever, and it was free.” - Kelli from Texas
