STARx Tribal Rx

STARx: A Native American Tribal Rx Program

STARx is a Tribal Access Rx Program offered by 90 Degree Benefits and Pequot Pharmaceutical Network (PRxN) specifically for Native Americans covered under a self-funded or tribally funded benefit plan. Pharmaceutical costs, especially specialty medications, are the fastest growing healthcare cost across the nation and without proper management, they can bankrupt plans and tribes. Rather than being reactive to these increasing costs, tribes now have a proactive way to decrease costs and save money. With STARx, tribal leaders see savings of 20% - 40% on their pharmaceutical costs.


How it Works

Rising healthcare costs prevent tribal leaders from investing valuable dollars into their community’s education, food, jobs and housing. STARx gives tribes access to major drug discounts through the Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) program, helping tribal leaders save on pharmaceutical costs and reinvest money into their tribe and community. Tribal leaders can calculate their potential STARx savings with the interactive calculator based on the number of covered employees in their self-funded and tribally funded health plans.
