PerformRx Claims Platform Transformation Delivers Speed and Ease

Philadelphia, Pa. PerformRx, a URAC-accredited, full-service pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) with industry-leading clinical programs and part of the AmeriHealth Caritas Family of Companies, recently transitioned its claims platform to a cloud-based system that streamlines the way pharmacy claims are processed. The new advanced platform integrates critical claims work streams, such as claims processing, pharmacy network management, prior authorization, clinical programs, Medicare and Medicaid compliance into a single, fast and user-friendly interface.

The platform is flexible, intuitive, and powerful and complements PerformRx’s extensive PBM service offerings, providing high quality, cost-effective pharmaceutical services that favor positive health and financial outcomes for all its clients. PerformRx provides a wide range of customizable PBM solutions to clients all across the United States.

“Since our business incorporates both commercial and government-funded clients, an advanced technology platform was required to further enhance the value we offer our partners,” said Mesfin Tegenu, President of PerformRx, LLC. “Claims is the single biggest pain point for our clients and their members, and moving to a cloud-based solution delivers a level of ease-of-use and efficiency that will provide greater customization around their needs, more flexibility and faster processing of claims.”
