This included obtaining RFPs for PBM services, negotiating collaborations to provide cross selling opportunities as well as training broker partners on the ever changing and turbulent PBM world.
While at the health plan, Roger sat on two nationally recognized health plan advisory councils. Roger was directly responsible for the development and strategy for new and existing sales pertaining to the health plans’ self-insured pharmacy block of business. Within that role, Roger cultivated new “carve in” opportunities by leveraging his experience and knowledge of the pharmacy benefit management industry. He also delivered annual reviews to clients to help them identify opportunities to “bend the trend”. Roger was an integral part of a team that turned the pharmacy department into a revenue source by creating a “PBM” within the health plan to create net margins.
