As pharmacy costs escalated in the late 1980's and prescription drugs became a bigger part of total healthcare costs, founder Pat Sirowich knew that there was a need to help control these costs for health plans, employers, institutions, third party administrators and health and welfare funds. Pat knew that pharmacy costs also impact healthcare costs and wanted to do something about it. She then started PBIRx® in 1993 to help control those costs. The company specializes in providing solution-based pharmacy benefit consulting services, which reach beyond the management of the formal Request for Proposal (RFP) process.
