RxEOB is a team of health care industry professionals who understand pharmacy benefit services, data management, software development, industry research, and industry market trends. With headquarter offices in Richmond, Virginia, privately-held RxEOB supports millions of people who are covered by health plans and pharmacy benefit managers with web-based software application services that improve their understanding of their pharmacy benefits – which leads to better medication adherence, lower costs, and increased drug safety.
RxEOB was founded over 15 years ago by Robert S. Oscar, a registered pharmacist who recognized that patients didn’t have a clue about their pharmacy benefits and needed his help at the retail pharmacy counter to sort through which alternative medications were available and how to get approval to receive them. Bob and some of his associates agreed that something needed to be done. So, together they began developing and implementing web-based portal applications to help members of health insurance plans better understand their pharmacy benefit options.
The RxEOB website portal applications they created were soon followed by the development of additional web-based tools for selecting pharmacy benefit plans at open enrollment and then these applications evolved into “workflow” time-saving tools used for managing formularies and for efficiently submitting and approving drug prior authorizations. These applications help corporate customers understand “all things pharmacy” for millions of patients receiving pharmacy benefits.
As health plan members began using more mobile technologies, RxEOB’s applications evolved to include consumer-facing mobile applications and personalized messaging services to bring relevant and personalized communications to members and patients about saving money on their medication expenses and encourage better adherence to the medications for better health.
The US healthcare industry can be a complex and confusing place for consumers who are searching for effective ways to manage chronic diseases and to achieve better health efficiently. RxEOB proudly serves companies who manage over 45 million members and collaborates with each company to develop pharmacy-focused software applications used by both their staff and their covered members to communicate the value of accessing and using their pharmacy benefits wisely.
