ST. PAUL, Minn., Jan. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Prime Therapeutics (Prime) announced today that Health Care Service Corporation (HCSC) has selected Triessent(R) as its primary specialty pharmacy program.

"Our relationship with our Blue Cross and Blue Shield clients ensures alignment of interests. Through Triessent, Prime can help our clients improve financial controls in this growing area without compromising a commitment to quality member care," says Tim Dickman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Prime.

"HCSC is excited to be able to partner with Prime in developing a comprehensive specialty program that is fully integrated with our medical management activities," said Kevin Slavik, Senior Pharmacy Director of HCSC. "With the implementation of Triessent, our members will experience the high-touch, personalized and coordinated care management they need to manage their health conditions."
