Elevate

Your patients know your value. Your PSAO should, too.

Preserving, protecting, and promoting independent pharmacist-provided patient care.

Protect your pharmacy’s patient access and financial viability

Elevate Provider Network is the only PSAO that combines strategic contracting, passionate advocacy, and substantial investments in your independent pharmacy’s clinical and financial success.*

Elevate Provider Network – fully aligned with your values and challenges

We understand that independent pharmacies need a PSAO that is fully aligned with the values and challenges of independent pharmacy. That’s why Elevate Provider Network, our PSAO, makes decisions in the best interest of our independent pharmacy members. We are fighting post-adjudication recoupments of all kinds through negotiations and continued advocacy efforts with legislators. 

Our contracting strategy works!

Elevate members achieved a 11.1 percent year-over-year growth compared to 4.9 percent for the total independent pharmacy retail network.† 

A healthier, more financially secure future for your pharmacy

Independent pharmacies need a PSAO that isn’t perpetuating an outdated business model that commoditizes them. Instead, you need a forward-thinking advocate that meets your needs today and invests in your future.

Elevate protects your viability and preserves your ability to serve your community:

  •  Avoids, delays, and reduces post-adjudication recoupments of any kind.
  • Contracting strategy results in substantial savings for Elevate members.**
  • Substantial savings make a significant difference in your pharmacy’s bottom line.**

Your patients value you and so does Elevate

Elevate Provider Network contracts differently, and our strategy is based on the belief that patients pick their pharmacy first and then they pick their plan. Elevate rejects the idea that all pharmacies are an interchangeable commodity with no incremental value. This is because we respect and trust the strong bond that independent pharmacists build with their patients.

That’s why we fight for fair compensation for the value our pharmacies deliver

Elevate’s selective contracting strategy:

  • Preserves patient access
  • Protects independent pharmacies’ viability
  • Promotes independent pharmacist- provided vital clinical services

**Per Elevate data based on average pharmacy filling 5,000 claims per month. Savings and results may vary.
