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.

The Triessent program helps clients address rising specialty costs by providing an approach to specialty pharmacy management that integrates across pharmacy and medical benefits.

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.

"With the implementation of Triessent, our members will experience the high-touch, personalized and coordinated care management they need to manage their health conditions."
