Opportunity to save money on prescription drugs via Rx Savings Solutions is underway

As of Jan. 1, Purdue faculty and staff members have the ability to use Rx Savings Solutions’ transformative and patented software to manage their prescription drug spending.

The partnership and implementation of Rx Savings Solutions supports multiple pillars of the Healthy Boiler Program. Depending on usage reasons, the partnership benefits behavioral health, financial wellness and/or physical health.

Purdue became the first in higher education to deliver Rx Savings Solutions' combination of prescription drug pricing transparency and personalized, cost-saving clinical recommendations to its faculty and staff members. Via Rx Savings Solutions, benefits-eligible employees can:

  • Quickly and easily see the lowest-price option for any prescription via their online portal.
  • Search to find pricing, savings suggestions and pharmacy options for any other prescription drugs via their online portal.  
  • Access certified pharmacy technicians for personal and confidential assistance over the phone or via email.
  • Keep their costs low for any prescription they or their family members need now or in the future.
  • Receive notifications via email or text whenever new ways to save money on their prescription(s) are found – no effort required. Rx Savings Solutions automatically sends the notifications.

On Jan. 7, Purdue employees began receiving direct email messages from Rx Savings Solutions encouraging them to activate their account and sharing more information about employee money-saving opportunities. All benefits-eligible employees and dependents covered on a Purdue health plan are already Rx Savings Solutions’ members; all that employees need to do now is activate their accounts, if they have not already done so. Rx Savings Solutions does the rest of the work. 

“Adding Rx Savings Solutions for 2020 fit perfectly into our smarter approach to health care, where we work to lessen the complexity of the system and keep the focus on our employees,” says Candace Shaffer, senior director of benefits in Human Resources. “As health care and prescription costs continue to rise across the country, having a partner to help manage the overwhelming and difficult prescription landscape is a valuable resource that we believe will make a tremendous difference in our employees’ personal and financial health.”

Rx Savings Solutions provides proactive prescription guidance for the best pharmacy benefit at the lowest cost. Patented algorithms look for all possible clinical therapies and financial options. More than 6.5 million members have access to the online tool.

 “As the University strives to help employees live healthy lifestyles and promote overall health and wellness across the University through our Healthy Boiler Program, it’s important to have access to a variety of valuable resources,” Shaffer says. “Our partnership with Rx Savings Solutions provides our employees and their families a unique opportunity to take control of their prescription drug costs.”
