Mike Winkelman:: Who we are - We are experts in pharmacy benefit management, prescription benefit design, mail order pharmacy, PBM audits and the integration of pharmacy benefits and data into the health care mainstream.

  • http://www.mwinkrx.com/whatwedo.php Mike Winkelman:: What we do - We enable Health Plans to lower pharmacy benefit costs and help our clients understand their current pharmacy benefits. Our process begins with an analysis of the present PBM relationship. We then move to renegotiation with current PBM vendors, or the recruitment of replacement vendor.
  • http://www.mwinkrx.com/the_pharmacy_benefits_landscape.php Mike Winkelman:: The Pharmacy Benefits Landscape - Brand name and specialty medications dominate the pharmaceutical market and continue to earn an increasing profit. Lower net costs are offered through a small number of Pharmacy Benefit Management programs. Government modification of health plan incentives is underway to continue to cover drug benefits for Medicare-eligible retirees.
  • http://www.mwinkrx.com/about_wmc.php Mike Winkelman:: About Mike Winkelman - Mike Winkelman, R.Ph., president of WMC, has been involved in pharmacy and health care for many years. His experience includes: pharmacy benefit management, consulting services, and pharmacy chain drug store executive.
  • http://www.mwinkrx.com/PBM_audit_services.php Mike Winkelman:: PBM Audit Services - We provide services to audit your current pharmacy benefits and do a performance analysis. Pharmacy Benefit Managers often hide their major sources of profit. PBM contracts generally maximize the PBM profits at the expense of health plans and recipients. Our PBM audit services can recover important dollars for our clients. We offer a fixed fee evaluation and overview of your benefit design.
  • http://www.mwinkrx.com/PBM_agreement_review.php Mike Winkelman:: THE PBM Agreement Review (PAR) APPROACH - The PBM Agreement Review (PAR) Approach consists of two phases: Analysis and Reporting and Follow up. In Phase I, our firm reviews and analyzes your current PBM agreement, including invoices and reports provided to you. A detailed report will be prepared with our findings and provide you with an estimated savings achievable though a transparent and pass-through PBM agreement. Your current rates will be compared to current marketplace rates. In Phase II, a follow up of the prior analysis will identify significant savings potential. We will contact the present PBM and renegotiate your existing agreement, or if necessary, will recruit a more suitable vendor.

  • James - Excellent!

    I've heard good things about WeatherTech and my expectations where definately exceeded. They fit perfectly and provide excellent protection. It was oddly pleasurable installing the rear mat, it fits over the middle hump so perfectly!

  • JetDriveSolutions - A Screen Thats is Better Than the MacBook Air

    I'm a web developer, and I'm the founder of an IT/Tech start-up. I was always very interested in the Chromebook OS, and I finally decided to purchase this device. I'm stunned. The quality and functionality of this device is far beyond what I expected, especially for the price. The Chromebook OS is far better that I had thought, and I actually like it. Since I do a lot of work on browser-based clients (i.e Google Docs, Zed..etc.) I can do everything I used to do on this Chromebook, with incredible productivity. Let me go over some pro's and con's with you.

  • E. Jundef - An Exfoliating Cleanser That Gets Down To Business

    I have to admit that I was never a big fan of exfoliaters. I was told that it often dries out your skin and scratches the surface of your face. I have learned this to only be true with some products. Murad's AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser is the exception! It is so gentle to the skin leaving your face feeling very smooth and refined. It doesn't irritate or dry out your skin. After using the product for a month, I definitely began to notice a difference in my face. My face felt very refreshed and it seemed to have a polished look. I would recommend this product to anyone. It's perfect for all skin types.

  • Amanda - Help for couples TTC

    I bought these after researching on ways to help my husband and I conceive naturally after trying for almost a year. I inserted them after the deed and used them only twice during my fertile window. We're pregnant on the first cycle!
