Before joining AlignRx, Kevin served as General Manager, Pharmacy Benefits Management (PBM) at HealthNow New York. He managed a team of clinical resources, operations personnel, and account managers responsible for over $600 million in medical and pharmacy spend, as well as 250 self-funded Rx clients covering 160,000 pharmacy lives. Throughout his career, Kevin was responsible for several major PBM and specialty pharmacy RFPs that drove operational improvement and substantial savings. He has significant experience in formulary development and management, rebate contracting, medical injectable fee schedule development, and overall trend management.

While at HealthNow, Kevin led the pharmacy benefit procurement on two separate occasions. This procurement effort included Commercial, Medicare and Medicaid lines of business and also included specialty pharmacy. Kevin led the transition from Accredo to Walgreens, as a component of one of the procurement efforts.

These procurement efforts resulted in tens of millions of dollars of savings for HealthNow, along with countless operation and contractual improvements.
