Date:11/15/2011

ST. PAUL, Minn., Nov. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Prime Therapeutics (Prime), a leading pharmacy benefit manager, announced today that it will implement a retail medication therapy management (MTM) program for Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota's (BCBSND) fully-insured group and individual membership.
