MISSISSAUGA, ON, Jan. 15, 2020 /CNW Telbec/ - Today, ClaimSecure announced a new strategic partnership with Rexall Drugstores and Sobeys Inc. to develop Canada's first comprehensive national health program that combines traditional health benefits with a pharmacy closed Preferred Provider Network (PPN) solution.
This unique offering pools the expertise of claims management, mail and retail pharmacy, specialty drug delivery and patient counselling capabilities under a single program, managed through a single point of contact, with unmatched savings.
"We're pleased that with today's announcement, patients can expect to see an improved healthcare experience with increased access to effective medications and product discounts provided through one of Canada's most wide-ranging retail and mail order network," says Paul Hardwick, President of ClaimSecure.
"Being part of the ValueHealth program will allow us to bring our innovative, patient-centered pharmacy solutions to plan members through our Sobeys, Safeway, Foodland, IGA, Thrifty Foods, FreshCo and Lawtons Drugs pharmacies," says Vivek Sood, Executive Vice President, Related Businesses, Sobeys Inc. "We look forward to working with our partners and patients to deliver meaningful health care in a cost-effective and convenient manner."
