TRICAST and Zywave Announce Partnership to Bolster ZywaveRx™ Pharmacy Benefit Discount Program

Relationship Ensures Brokers and Clients Get Best Contract Pricing From Pharmacy Benefit Managers

MILWAUKEE, WI--(Marketwired - Aug 12, 2015) - Today, TRICAST announced a partnership with Zywave that will provide insurance brokers and their clients access to newly negotiated contract pricing with pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs). 

The partnership brings measurable value to brokers and their clients because of the program's ability to offer low dispensing fees, deep pharmacy discounts and aggressive rebates. In addition, Zywave works with multiple PBMs, offering brokers and clients more diversity when choosing a PBM vendor.

"ZywaveRx, powered by TRICAST business intelligence, will help brokers easily identify savings for their clients," said Rob Bigalke, TRICAST's Senior Pharmacy Consultant and Director of Business Development. "Using the calculator that's embedded in ZywaveRx, you can plug in some basic information or supply an entire claim set. The more information you provide, the more accurate your savings analysis will be. It really is the ultimate tool for controlling overall pharmacy spending."

TRICAST will oversee all pricing negotiations and program administration and will provide industry-leading support and expertise, ensuring that brokers' clients receive the most value from their pharmacy benefits.

"Being a Zywave partner just got sweeter," said CEO of Zywave, Dave O-Brien. "Our new relationship with TRICAST means our partners have direct access to a team of experts with a wealth of pharmacy benefits and health care insight."
