Prime Therapeutics Launches CareCentered Contracting™ Program
Date:9/22/2011

ing pharmacy and medical data for its health plan owners.

The first two drugs with outcomes-based contracts were osteoporosis drug Actonel® from Warner Chilcott Company and diabetes drug Januvia® from Merck. With the launch of CareCentered Contracting, Prime is negotiating additional contracts in areas where rebate contracting does not currently apply.

"Outcomes-based contracts changed the game by focusing on patient outcomes, not just volume of drugs in determining costs," said Sue Scheid, Prime's vice president of trade relations. "With CareCentered Contracting we are again changing the dynamic by establishing contracts in categories like Multiple Sclerosis, and other specialty disease states. We are in discussions with several manufacturers and anticipate additional contracts to be added to the program in the near term.”
