What’s your decision flow process?

As a fiduciary-model PBM, free education is a core part of TransparentRx’s strategy. Think about it, we win when clients are educated and our competitors or non-fiduciary PBMs win when clients are illiterate.
I’m often asked, “why do you give away valuable information for free? Aren’t you just shooting yourself in the foot?
