Helios, the new name for Progressive Medical and PMSI, is bringing the focus of workers’ compensation and auto no-fault pharmacy benefit management, ancillary services, and settlement solutions back to where it belongs – the injured party.
Service or Product Description
We believe in doing what’s right for our clients and injured workers. Our program helps clients achieve the lowest total program cost through more control and better outcomes.
Pharmacy Benefit Management
The vast majority of prescriptions are taken appropriately; however, that’s not always the case. Long-term utilization and the associated risks of misuse, abuse and addiction require a comprehensive clinical program to capture savings and ensure the injured worker receives the right drugs at the right time - every time.
Through our unique end-to-end pharmacy-to-payer solution, starting at the First Fill, we are able to capture more prescriptions and claim information in-network than any other workers' comp PBM – ensuring proper utilization, network savings and eliminating out-of-network hassles.
Doing what’s right for the injured worker and you.
Ancillary services from Helios provide both cost savings to you and personal care to injured workers. Our providers are ranked on service, location, quality care and injured workers are asked for feedback. And a single, coordinated plan yields reduced cost, less paperwork and fewer hassles.
