ACHRM & US-Rx Care
In ACHRMs continued efforts to assist self-insured K-12 Public Schools to more effectively manage their health risks and healthcare costs, we are excited to offer a unique opportunity to manage pharmacy benefit spend. If you choose to join the ACHRM project, we plan to capture and report project participants' process and results to assist other employers across the US.

ACHRM has negotiated a preferred agreement with US-Rx Care to provide its highly regarded and proprietary pharmacy risk management services at discounted rates to ACHRM members. We plan to leverage the project results to lay foundation for ACHRM educational events. This opportunity is available for a limited number of participants on a first come first serve basis
