Medical costs are always a challenge for employers and a large part of that can come from the price of high-cost, specialty drugs. The CEA Benefits Program can help guarantee savings on those costs.

Putting the costs in perspective

  • High-Cost, Specialty drugs make up 44-55% of your plan's prescription drug expense
  • The average annual cost of a single high cost, specialty drug is $53,486

What is the Prescription Assistance Program?

  • Has a direct relationship with specialty drug manufacturers with no middleman to produce the same medication at much reduced cost
  • Obtains special pricing on hundreds of high-cost drugs
  • PAP will save your plan 35%-%50 on your high-cost, specialty drugs each year
  • Uses technology that is constantly tracking and reporting to help reduce costs
  • Employees get the same medication they've always had, just at a lower price and no copay

How can we get started?

It’s easy! All you have to do is send us your most recent 6 months to a year of your drug utilization report and we’ll do the rest.

We will analyze your data and show you how much you will save on your health care plan's prescription drugs.

Our team deals directly with the manufacturer to procure the medication at a much lower cost.

Employees get the same medication that they’ve always had, just at a lower price and with no co-pays.

What does implementation looks like?

  • The Summary Plan Document is updated to accommodate the program
