Date:3/15/2011

EIGHTY FOUR, Pa., March 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ARMSRx Pharmacy Benefit Consulting, the nation's leading Pharmacy Benefit consulting firm, has consistently provided successful recommendations for their clients.

On February 16th, ARMSRx presented results to one of their premier clients, 84 Lumber.  It was recommended and modeled by ARMSRx last year, what potential savings opportunities were made available by making some simple changes.  The results speak for themselves.  "84 Lumber experienced a 0.1% trend with a generic change increase of 8.7% from the previous year resulting in close to half a million in annual savings alone," cites Jennifer Kingsley Wilson, CEO of ARMSRx.

"That is impressive," comments Stephanie Cormier, VP of Account Management at ARMSRx, who supports 84 Lumber, and concludes through additional analysis "that with the employees getting used to the idea of filling generics, the potential savings could be an additional $350,000."

Total plan costs were a negative -13.0% from the previous year with an increase of Home Delivery use of 83.4%.  Jeweleen Hartzfeld of 84 Lumber notes that "we were cautious making changes; ARMSRx helped us ensure our employees experienced ease of the Rx benefit transition.  We have been told our benefits are rich and our employees are fortunate, most plans require a much greater cost share from the employees.  With creative strategies introduced by ARMSRx, we've worked collaboratively; we've made some great strides and we are pleased to say the least."
