San Francisco Health Plan Continues its Partnership with PerformRx® as its Pharmacy Benefit Manager



SAN FRANCISCO, /PRNewswire/ -- San Francisco Health Plan (SFHP), a community managed care health plan serving over 140,000 San Francisco residents, announced today that it is continuing and expanding its partnership with PerformRx to manage its pharmacy benefits.

Since July 2013, SFHP and PerformRx have been working together to provide pharmacy services to our members that improve patient outcomes while focusing on fiscal responsibility and financial performance. The continued partnership will help ensure excellent pharmacy management and benefit services for our members.

"Five years ago we chose PerformRx as our pharmacy benefit manager, knowing that they were going to assist us in our core values -- ensuring excellent service, quality, and affordability for our members," said John F. Grgurina, Jr., CEO of San Francisco Health Plan. "Since that time, they have grown to share in our mission and in our dedication of delivering high quality health care. I'm looking forward to seeing our partnership develop as we strive toward our goal of universal coverage for the people of San Francisco."

Jim Glauber, MD, MPH, SFHP's Chief Medical Officer stated, "Getting medicines to our members when they are prescribed in a timely, accessible manner is an enormous task. PerformRx supported us by delivering an aggressive generic management, enhanced client reporting system, an improved Prior Authorization process, and more. These tools allow us to deliver the excellent pharmacy services our members have come to expect and deserve." 

Working with Excelsior Solutions pharmacy consultants, San Francisco Health Plan enlisted an iterative qualitative scoring and financial analysis process from request for proposal to final selection. 

PerformRx is a clinician-led pharmacy benefit manager providing prescription drug claim processing, pharmacy network management and clinical support for Medicare, Medi-Cal and commercial plans.
