AscellaHealth and Appro-Rx Partner to Provide Specialty Pharmacy Services


BERWYN, PA — AscellaHealth this week announced a partnership with Appro-Rx, a national prescription benefit management company, to become its specialty pharmacy services and solutions provider.

Kyle Fields, CEO, Business Division, Appro-Rx, says, “As a growing pharmacy benefit manager (PBM) and health information technology company, we are highly enthusiastic about our partnership with AscellaHealth, an innovative company that shares our mission to bring pricing fairness and transparency to the PBM industry, especially for high-cost specialty drugs. Specialty drugs are vastly more expensive than their traditional drug counterparts, and this partnership not only enables our clients to realize significant cost savings but also to improve health outcomes for their employees.”

AscellaHealth’s innovative specialty pharmacy and infusion services provide cost-saving discounts on prescription medications with timely access to therapies, data-driven reporting and patient support programs—all of which help to improve patient adherence and health outcomes, thereby optimizing the patient journey.
