Us-Rx Care Unveils Innovative Approach to Utilization Management
MIAMI--US-Rx Care is changing the landscape of the pharmacy benefit management industry with an
innovative utilization reduction program that increases efficiency, improves patient care and saves money.
The company's new, innovative Therapeutic Alternatives Prescription System can lead to a reduction in the
number of medicines prescribed. The US-Rx Care pharmaceutical team analyzes relevant individual cases to
determine if poly-therapy, the use of more than one drug, is actually medically necessary or if better or less
expensive drugs can be used.
US-Rx Care President Renzo Luzzatti said that his company is looking at utilization reduction not just from a
safety perspective but also cost.
"Not only does the patient save money with fewer co-pays, the benefit plan saves money as well," Luzzatti
said. "This translates directly into lower costs for the plan members."
US-Rx Care has a unique business model: it only profits when the patients and plan sponsors save money.
Other PBMs make money on the number of prescriptions used.
About US-Rx Care

Traditional pharmacy benefit management companies have the incentive to maximize profits through
mail-order fulfillment and drug manufacturer revenue, neither of which have historically produced cost
savings or quality of care benefits. US-Rx Care operates differently because the company only profits when
members and clients save money. Its focus is to optimize quality of care while minimizing member
out-of-pocket and plan costs.
The company developed the effective fixed cost pricing structure that reduces client pharmacy risk while
saving money. US-Rx Care manages 2.5 million members. For more information, visit www.usrxcare.com.
