This month, our CEO, Jason Borschow, was invited to speak to David Williams on the HealthBiz Podcast. In the 30 minute episode, Jason shared his journey to founding Abarca, how the company leverages modern technology in healthcare, and what it really means to operate as a transparent PBM.
“I’ve heard people say that rocket science is not really that hard, but healthcare is,” said Jason. “You need to have modern tools that allow you to customize and modify that complexity in a way that doesn’t take a lot of time.
Jason and David also discussed Assura–Abarca’s solution that offers guaranteed net costs of drugs, including specialty medications–and how it differs from approaches implemented by other PBMs.
“While we’re not giving our clients a reinsurance model, we are assuring them that we’re going to be at risk for inflation of drug prices and for mix,” Jason explained.
