Patriot has available a PPO network which includes multiple networks, instead of a singular network. This delivers maximum savings and penetration for each client based on their jurisdictional requirements.

- Our Bill Review program retrospectively reviews pharmacy claims to ensure that network reductions, contracted rates, Fee Schedule/UCR were applied properly. In addition, the program provides out of network reviews and negotiations.
- We recognize that rising medical costs are a large factor contributing to the escalating cost of medical claims. Patriot utilizes a pharmacy benefit management program to better assist clients.
