Comprehensive Care Corporation Announces It Backs Its Pharmacy Cost-Savings Program With A Surety Performance Bond

- Guarantees Prescription Drug Savings; First in Nation -

TAMPA, Fla., Jan. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Comprehensive Care Corporation ("CompCare") (OTC BB: CHCR), a leading behavioral health, substance abuse and psychotropic pharmacy management services provider for managed care companies throughout the U.S., today announced it will back its new "at-risk" Pharmacy Cost-Savings Program with fully guaranteed performance bonds. 

The performance bonds will provide CompCare the ability to guarantee its clients the successful delivery of pharmacy benefits management services at a verifiable and mutually agreed upon per member per month cost savings.

"We believe that this innovative Pharmacy Cost-Savings Program will revolutionize this sector of the healthcare industry.  We are especially pleased to announce that we are now willing to back each of our pharmacy benefits management service contracts with a performance bond, which willprovide the client with both an assurance of our performance at substantially lower costs from previous years' pharmacy spends and budget predictability," said Ramon Martinez, Senior Consultant to CompCare management.

Developed over the past one and a half years, CompCare is introducing an enhanced pharmacy program that does not require any changes to the client's current pharmacy plan design or formulary, thereby eliminating disruption to beneficiaries. Through arrangements with a network of selected pharmacy benefits managers, and the development by CompCare of cost-saving ancillary pharmacy programs, CompCare has constructed a pharmacy system that substantially reduces pharmacy costs to HMO's and self-insured's while, we believe, simultaneously delivering superior care to members and increasing CompCare's margins in its pharmacy benefits management division.

The pharmacy program enables CompCare to enter into "at-risk" pharmacy contracts with clients offering per member per month pharmacy costs substantially lower than their previous year's pharmacy spend.  The financial backbone of the program will be a performance bond, which accompanies CompCare's promised delivery of services at the materially reduced per member per month cost – a financial win from all perspectives for CompCare's clients.

Supporting the pharmacy program even further, CompCare is in the process of hiring a sales team dedicated to the sale of this new program.

"Management is confident that this significant new dimension to CompCare's business will lead to substantially higher margins and increase business to both its behavioral health and 'at-risk' pharmacy benefits management divisions.  We do not know of any other company in the country prepared to providea surety performance bond toits clients that guarantees delivery of the value and savings promised in providing pharmacy benefits management services," concluded Mr. Martinez.

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
