Castlight Health Selects PBM WithMe Health to Reduce Medication Spending

Castlight Health, a health navigation platform, selected pharmacy benefit manager WithMe Health to join its partner network with an aim to cut medication spending and improve outcomes.

WithMe touts its hands-on, tailored approach to helping patients who need support with medications, like those who are managing multiple health conditions. WithMe Health is an innovative pharmacy benefits company that works directly with employers and health benefit vendors to provide easy to understand pharmacy benefits.

WithMe members have 24/7 virtual access to its in-house experts, primarily pharmacists and pharmacy technicians, who serve as “medication guides.” Members can also access assistance through its medication guide app, which houses member profiles and generates recommended interventions based on clinical information and analytics.

Instead of focusing on one aspect of care or using disparate solutions to drive down cost, the companies are trying to make it easier for employers and health plans to access multiple solutions and savings in one place.

WithMe’s services will be recommended to members directly in the Castlight app and by Castlight’s care guides. Many members will also receive calls directly from WithMe’s medication guides with ways to save money and get assistance with taking medications as directed, as well as information on drug interaction and safety reviews, and help monitoring disease and symptom progression.

Navitus recently announced a strategic investment in WithMe Health. This investment and the developing relationship between Navitus and WithMe Health, expands Navitus’ access to WithMe Health’s medication guidance capabilities to ensure members are on optimal medications, getting the support they need to stay adherent, and they are responding to therapy, all with the goal of helping employers and members receive the most benefit from their medications.


Takeaway: WithMe Health’s selection by Castlight Health furthers growth of the company’s client base as well as an extension of its core offering
