As a Pharmacy Services Administrative Organization (PSAO), Community Independent Pharmacy Network (CIPN) is an organization that is dedicated to providing preferred pharmacy network providers access to patients of managed care plans that utilize existing community pharmacies.
CIPN works with pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) and other managed care organizations so that preferred pharmacy network providers receive quality representation in numbers. CIPN also offers additional value added services related to third party contracting assistance.
There are select PBMs and health plans that do not work with PSAOs. Because of this, CIPN takes contracting to the next level and offers a retail business solution to all preferred pharmacy network providers that will assist them with direct contracts.
