Background : Just two-years ago in April, the #AcceleratePA project-team of Lewis Strategic, Dellicker Strategies and Business Information Group (BIG) issued a request for proposal (RFP) seeking private-sector investments in local broadband. 44-organizations participated.

That June, Dellicker Strategies announced staggering results for the Monroe County Gigabit Project that dropped broadband prices/Mbps as much as 90% and saw two companies start to offer Gigabit services.

President and CEO Kevin Dellicker explained, “The best way to make sure you can sustain a viable communications model is to pull-together your buying power and present yourself as a profitable target, and you can make it work,” he explained.

What's PNGAS?

The Pennsylvania National Guard Associations (“PNGAS”) is the only organization solely dedicated to the 19,438 members and more than 67,500 veterans of the Pennsylvania National Guard and their families. In the next 12-months, the Pennsylvania National Guard must recruit more than 2,300 new members to replace Guard members that have completed their commitments and/or retired. Accordingly, PNGAS activities help ensure the Pennsylvania National Guard is fully funded, manned, equipped, and trained to perform their mission and that members and veterans get the benefits they have earned.

Lewis Strategic was recently recognized for its work that led to the restoration of the local tax exemption for active military service.

Act 6 of 2016 has now saved active-duty military families more than $7.7 Million .

Recognizing a key legislator, Senator Randy Vulakovich (pictured below), the Chairman of the Senate Veterans Affairs & Emergency Preparedness Committee helped PNGAS celebrate this success at the annual PNGAS State Conference!

Listening to members and veterans, PNGAS convened the inaugural Business Advisory Council and Education Advisory Councils at the 2018 Annual State Conference in Lancaster, PA. Aimed at helping members, veterans and their families create and market Guard-owned companies, gain skills-sets, get degrees and jobs, these networks will hold meetings...

BeneCard PBF is a game-changing Prescription Benefit Manager (PBM) driving immediate and sustained Rx savings

BeneCard PBF is a game-changing Prescription Benefit Manager (PBM) driving immediate and sustained Rx savings for organizations, like yours. Our results in Pennsylvania have been very strong. 

Examples of Significant Savings: 
In 2016 a large Philadelphia union spent more than $15.3 million on Rx prescriptions. Then, they hired BeneCard PBF as their prescription benefit manager and in 2017, this union only spent $12.1 million on Rx prescriptions, a dramatic Rx savings of more than $3.1 million dollars, annually. They have told us their HR department never received benefit compliments before they started using BeneCard PBF.  

For 2017, we proposed $660,000 in Rx savings to a city in central Pennsylvania. We won the contract. Since our model is purely transparent & pass-through and the client gets all achieved Rx savings, this city actually received $1,081,00 in RX savings, almost double the projected savings. 

You Have Doubts, No Problem:
So you can see it, and we can guarantee it, we will prepare a zero-cost, no-obligation Rx Reprice Analysis Report showing what you paid for prescriptions, and how much less you would have paid with BeneCardPBF. The Report will also show you the Rx prescription rebates you received versus what you would have received using BeneCardPBF. To get this free Report, we can facilitate getting a complete 12-month data run of your Rx spend with your broker and HR leaders.

Compounded Savings:   
Even as prescription drug costs continue to rise exponentially, we have historically outperformed the industry.  While the industry Rx trend is 47.80%, BeneCard PBF's Rx trend over the same period is only 19.67% Having the lowest prescription trend matters, as it demonstrates the exponential value of compounded savings year over year. Getting the right prescriptions also drives lower medical costs, reduces expensive hospital stays and makes members feel better. 

Many PBM contracts include a 90-days notice clause that enables them to terminate a contract so these Rx savings could be immediately captured. We also participate in RFPs for Prescription Benefit Management (PBM) services. 

Contact us  today to schedule a 30-minute meeting or call to show you how we can deliver 20% to 35% savings for your organization.
