Tyson, Rx Savings form partnershi­p

- — Nathan Owens

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.
