The benefits (and burdens) of providing pharmacy coverage continues to increase for employers. As VP of Clinical Programs & Operations, Jim partners with clients and their Apex team to ensure employees have access to cost-effective medications. Along with Apex’s strategic partners, he will deploy services to realize the benefits negotiated in client’s pharmacy contracts.
Jim has over 25 years of health care experience, primarily as an executive with Eli Lilly and Company. His experience navigating the relationship between pharmaceutical manufacturers, health insurers and pharmacy benefit managers brings unique perspectives on drug costs and creates opportunities for employers to reduce costs and enhance their pharmacy benefit.
Jim lives in Carmel with his wife, Marci, and their two children. He enjoys spending time with his family, reading, watching sci-fi movies, and working hands-on home improvement projects. He and his family are avid open wheel racing fans, especially enjoying the month of May in Indy and traveling to watch IndyCar races. In the community, Jim volunteers his time with HOPE and the Crooked Creek Food Pantry.
