LISLE, Ill. — Pharmacy benefit manager Catamaran Corp. has opened a new "Center of Excellence" in downtown Indianapolis, the company said Thursday.
Catamaran announced the opening of the 13,000-square-foot center, which it said will support the services it will provide under the $60 million, six-year Medicaid contract with the Indiana state government, signed in October.
The center, one of 11 around the country, officially opened in a ribbon-cutting ceremony this week, attended by state officials and healthcare leaders, and will house pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and others.
"Catamaran's Center of Excellence model is the cornerstone of our business strategy and allows us to organize our expertise and talent around a specific client to deliver industry-leading results," Catamaran segment president Dan Hardin said. "It's a best-of-breed approach that has proven very effective in driving down the cost of healthcare while enhancing access to care and customer satisfaction."
