Case StudyAviation Giant Saves Big $$$
A Fortune 500 maker of luxury business jets partnered with Scripta for a five year initiative to address rising healthcare costs. The results speak for themselves.
The client, makers of the world’s most advanced business jet, partnered with Scripta to address the problem of rising healthcare costs. The partnership helped save the company and its employees over $9.8 Million.
An initial audit of the company’s pharmacy spend revealed that a single, controversial narcolepsy drug had been costing the client over $500,000 annually.
In addition to providing formulary and pre-authorization guidance, Scripta monitored the company’s pharmacy spend on an ongoing basis. When the company changed its PBM and the price for one specialty drug increased by 20% overnight, the company had the data it needed to negotiate a better deal immediately.
The bulk of the $9.8 million in savings, year upon year, were driven by an aggressive internal marketing campaign.
By presenting employees and their doctors with the full range of potential savings and by making that data securely available online, Scripta was able to save the client’s employees an average of $513 annually on their medications, while the company itself saved an average of $1,312 per enrolled employee.

Fortune 500 Company
Million Dollars in Savings
Scripta is proud to have helped the client to deliver on its promise of promoting a healthier, more productive workforce. The program fulfilled management’s commitment to employee health at the most basic level: by reinforcing the doctor/patient relationship, and by ensuring that its employees – whose health is the health of the business – were getting the best meds at the best price (saving them an average of $513 annually on their medications).
Case StudyEncouraging Healthy Behaviors
A Top 100 Integrated Health System wanted to incentivize its employees to lead healthier lifestyles. Scripta helped them succeed (while saving money across the board).
Prescription drugs don’t work if patients can’t afford to take them. Scripta played a critical role by delivering over $1.5 million in co-pay savings to ensure that this hospital system’s workers can follow doctor’s orders.
Scripta saved the client over $292,000 on day one, when an initial audit indicated that a single drug for a single patient was costing $30,000 per fill. The recommended alternative was just as effective—and much cheaper.
Formulary changes have yielded over $700,000 in savings during this five-year partnership and ongoing monitoring of the client’s PBM continues to address pricing anomalies that result from new drugs and constantly-changing usage patterns.
An aggressive internal marketing campaign provided employees with valuable cost-saving recommendations and ensured that their doctors had unprecedented access to cost and co-pay information.
Patients won’t take drugs they can’t afford, but the results of improved medication adherence are well-documented. They include reduced overall health care costs, fewer hospitalizations, and better management of chronic conditions, which prevents absenteeism and increases productivity.
