Will WellPoint have Company?

By Clive Riddle, March 20, 2009

Managed Healthcare Executive Magazine quotes me in a short article on “WellPoint PBM business for sale” by Tracey Walker, March 13, 2009.

The article states: “According to Clive Riddle, president and founder of MCOL, a provider of business-to-business health management and managed care resources in Modesto, Calif., many large health plans have in-house PBMs, and ‘there is often intense pressure from the analyst and investor community to imitate such initiatives. It is unlikely that WellPoint will be the only plan to go down this path in the near future’.”

So we shall see if by this time next year if Wellpoint gets company from other health plans putting PBMs on the auction block.
