PPOk developed a third party network in 1994 to establish a strong network of high quality independent pharmacies in order to negotiate contracts as a chain of community retail pharmacies for regional and national plans. Over the years, PPOk has had success in negotiating more favorable contract terms and reimbursement rates with PBMs because of central administration and payment, which helps reduce the PBMs' overall administrative costs. In addition, PPOk continues to monitor and be a driving force on state and national legislative issues that have a tremendous impact on independent retail pharmacies, i.e. Medicaid reimbursement, audit, legislation, etc.
Pharmacy Providers of Oklahoma is committed to cost containment strategies and information management. PPOk provides Third Party Contracting Services, Central Payment, Claims Reconciliation, RxLinc Claims Transmission, Contract Compliance Monitoring, MAC Evaluations, RxProtect Audit Services and Buying Group Programs for over 3800 pharmacies nationwide. PPOk is a membership owned Not-for-Profit corporation whose sole purpose is to ensure the viability, success, and competitiveness of its participating pharmacies.
