Health Insurance Solutions, Inc. saves Albany County millions

ICYMI- County Executive McCoy announced a way that the county is lowering prescription drug costs and saving taxpayers money after partnering with Health Insurance Solutions, Inc. (HISI). The company finds ways for municipalities to lower the costs of prescription drugs without sacrificing quality. Albany County partnered with HISI in 2020. Since then, the county has saved millions of dollars by HISI going to the Pharmacy Benefit Manager at our prescription drug company and found rebates offered that should be credited to Albany County. A rebate audit HISI did back to 2019 recognized that Albany County was not receiving the money owed to it from the county’s prescription drug company Pharmacy Benefit Manager and that $700,000 was garnered and was presented to County Executive McCoy today.
