Tyson, Rx Savings form partnership
Tyson Foods is working with Rx Savings Solutions to help its U.S. workers and families save money on prescription drugs.
The move is the latest of Tyson’s efforts to promote a culture of health and well-being in the wake of the covid-19 pandemic, Tyson said.
Using Rx’s free, confidential online tool, fulltime employees and their dependants will be able to find ways to pay less for medications covered through Tyson’s health plan later this month.
Workers will be able to search for savings on the prescriptions they take or for lower-cost options that treat the same conditions, Tyson said Monday.
Michael Rea, a clinical pharmacist and founder of Rx Savings Solutions, said in a written statement that the company strives to bring transparency to the world of prescription drugs and to remove its complexity so consumers can make the most educated choices about their medications.
Tyson recently expanded its health staff to include more than 500 nurses and hired its first chief medical officer.
