Prime Therapeutics Rolls Out New Real Time Benefit Tool

With the deadline approaching for Medicare Part D plans to implement a Real Time Benefit Tool (RTBT) — which informs prescribers when lower-cost alternative therapies are available under a beneficiary’s drug benefit — one PBM is offering up a new tool to fulfill the requirement.

Prime Therapeutics, LLC, a PBM collectively owned by 18 Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans, said on Sept. 2 that it is rolling out a tool called Real Time Benefit Check, which works through the ePrescribe function of a health care provider’s electronic health record (EHR) system. The idea is to offer providers “comprehensive information so they can easily prescribe the most appropriate and cost-effective medications at the point of care,” per a news release from the PBM.
