BeneCard PBF Delivers Purely Transparent PBM Services

Already Exceeds Trump Administration’s Plan for Pharmacy Benefit Managers

The Trump administration recently released its Blueprint in Brief, outlining challenges and key strategies for needed change in the American drug market. The administration has asked for input to inform these actions, and BeneCard PBF welcomes this discussion. In fact, the company has pioneered a transparent PBM model that goes above and beyond the administration’s plan.

Transparency represents a key part of the administration’s plan to lower drug prices. This is the foundation upon which BeneCard PBF was established ten years ago. The company not only offers patient’s real-time detailed pricing information to support decision making, they also encourage annual audits to verify their model and results. This evolved PBM model invites an open dialogue and places patients at the center of coordinated care. The company’s transparent approach and advanced clinical programs eliminate waste and deliver improved health outcomes and cost savings.

As PBMs combine with health plans and get bigger, patients get smaller. Most of the PBM industry focuses on profit-margins, mergers, and acquisitions. BeneCard PBF focuses on people with a unique business model that drives improved health outcomes and immediately passes through savings. The company’s experience has proven that an emphasis on patient-centric clinical coordination of care allows the development of advanced clinical programs that truly focus on improved health outcomes.  This personalized health management, made possible by a transparent PBM model that puts people first, contains drugs costs.

BeneCard PBF delivers clinically focused, ethical and transparent pharmacy benefit services. Its advanced technology easily adapts to meet the demands of an ever-changing industry. Although drug costs continue to rise, and the PBM industry’s average seven-year prescription trend sits at 47.80%, BeneCard PBF’s seven-year trend is less than half of that at 19.67%. Lower prescription trends generate savings that compound year over year, and BeneCard PBF continues to outperform the industry.

BeneCard PBF is a national, full-service Prescription Benefit Manager that excels in patient-centric care. The company defies industry norms and delivers clinically focused, ethical and purely transparent PBM solutions. To achieve proven lower net costs, the company aligns its interests with its clients’ needs through proactive clinical programs and award-winning customer service.

About Froggy’s Fog

Froggy’s Fog is a national category leader in fog, haze, snow and bubble fluids and the machines that disperse them. Before Froggy’s Fog was started, company cofounder Chris Markgraf noticed the employees and children complaining of an odor and dry eyes after being in fog products used at the Family Entertainment Center he owned and operated. His idea to produce a non-toxic, kid-friendly fog effect, became a reality when he eventually launched Froggy’s Fog with his partner, Adam Pogue. The partners invented a longer lasting fog that was less irritating and made the lasers of laser tag and the lights in the family entertainment center look great.  They took this passion for better effects to design superior bubble, haze, snow and now fog-bubble products. The fluids are 100% Made in the U.S. and include lab-grade UV-filtered de-ionized water and pharmaceutical grade ingredients. Using the highest-grade ingredients available significantly limits adverse effects and irritations. The company’s products are not only fun but safe for kids of all ages.

The successful bid was a collaboration of local partners led by NJ Sharing Network, the state’s organ procurement organization that saves lives through organ and tissue donation.

The Transplant Games of America will include over 20 competitions as well as a full program of special events. It is anticipated that the 2020 Games will include some unique “winter” competitions as part the of American Dream project.

“The Transplant Games are the ultimate representation of what we stand for: courage, achievement and triumph over adversity,” said Joe Roth, President and CEO of NJ Sharing Network. “These Games will be an awe-inspiring demonstration of the power of life, in some cases literally passed from one participant to the next. They will embrace the entire transplant community – healthcare providers, recipients, donors, donor families, patients waiting for transplants, organizations like ours, and other supporters, in a shared mission to highlight the need for and the life-saving benefits of organ and tissue donation.”

Lead partners include NJ Sharing Network, Hackensack Meridian Health, RWJ Barnabas Health, Novartis, American Dream, Meadowlands Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Meadowlands Liberty Convention and Visitors Bureau.

We are extremely honored and proud to be a partner of the 2020 games,” said Jim Kirkos, President and CEO of Meadowlands Regional Chamber of Commerce.

CELSIUS® Brand Fitness Drink Announces 2018 Presenting Sponsorship Of Tough Mudder’s North America Challenge Series

National Vision Administrators (NVA) Helps NJ Food Pantries Get Fresh Food From Home Gardeners

NVA President, Dave Karlin, Appointed President of AmpleHarvest.org’s Board

National Vision Administrators (NVA), a Clifton, New Jersey-based vision benefits administrator, is partnering with nonprofit AmpleHarvest.org to help home gardeners donate their surplus produce to feed the hungry throughout the state. According to The Feeding America’s 2012 Food Insecurity Report, in New Jersey, the food insecurity rate is at 13%, with 1,141,890 people being “food insecure.” Food insecurity refers to a condition where a lack of access to safe and nutritious food prevents people from living healthy and active lives. The numbers have grown annually as indicated in The Feeding America 2014 study, which noted that 62% of feeding programs in New Jersey saw an increase in demand over the previous year.

NVA’s President, David Karlin is now serving as AmpleHarvest.org’s board president and NVA has donated $10,000.00 to fund the creation of the first national database of food pantries that enables home gardeners to donate excess vegetables and fruits. A pioneering nonprofit, AmpleHarvest.org has created the first ever national registry/database of food pantries to expedite donations from home and community gardeners. NVA is supporting the effort and encouraging other companies to do the same.

According to the Natural Resource Defense Council 2017 report, 50% of our produce is never consumed. Food waste comes from a variety of sources including produce that is discarded by millions of backyard gardeners, estimated to be more than 11 billion pounds based on an analysis by Cisco Systems. Food is wasted because gardeners harvest more than they can use. This excess could feed 28 million people in the U.S. annually. Moreover, food pantries nationwide desperately need fresh food. Each year, they feed 50 million people.

Established in 2009, AmpleHarvest.org helps 42 million home and community gardeners end food waste and hunger by educating and making it easy for them to donate their excess garden produce to one of more than 8,000 nearby food pantries. According to AmpleHarvest.org Founder and Executive Director Gary Oppenheimer, “Our research shows that four out of five gardeners are willing and able to donate produce to a local food pantry but simply don’t know how. Not only does AmpleHarvest.org give home gardeners the information they need to do this, but our new database, which NVA is helping us build, will accelerate these much-needed donations.”

According to NVA President and AmpleHarvest.org Board President, David Karlin, “Corporate sponsorships are vital to completing our state and national databases, which will make donating fresh food that would otherwise go to waste much easier. At its core, AmpleHarvest.org is the community in action. It is individuals across our nation sharing their surpluses to help feed their neighbors in need.” “NVA sees the importance in feeding our neighbors from a health perspective.  We know a diet filled with fruits and vegetables is good for our overall health, but researchers have found it can benefit your eyes too.  Some fruits and vegetables contain carotenoid compounds such as beta-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin, and vitamins C and E which are all good for your eyes.”

NVA Helps AmpleHarvest.org Create Database of Food Pantries, Add One

About NVA

NVA Smart Buyer® program, which helps people be smarter buyers of eye care and eyewear. Supporting AmpleHarvest.org will enable home gardeners to be smarter stewards of their bounties.

CELSIUS®’ Newest Product Launch, Celsius Heat™, Selected As One Of Beverage Industry’s 2017 Innovations Of The Year

CELSIUS®’ trainer-grade pre-workout leads the pack in energy drink innovation

Celsius Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: CELH), maker of the leading global fitness drink, CELSIUS®, today announced that its new trainer-grade line, CELSIUS HEAT™, was selected as one of Beverage Industry’s Innovations of the Year in the energy drink category. The editors of Beverage Industry, the leading trade publication written for executives of the beverage processing industry, evaluated new beverage launches released throughout 2017. As a result, the editors identified the five beverages that are driving innovation based on their unique characteristics and ability to fill a need within the beverage market. In CELSIUS HEAT™’s case, the demand was for a proven, trainer-grade pre-workout drink that provides long-lasting energy. The 2017 Innovations of the Year will be featured in Beverage Industry’s December issue.

“We are honored that Beverage Industry recognizes the innovation that sets CELSIUS HEAT™ apart from any other fitness drink, namely that it’s a pre-workout option that not only tastes amazing, but is clinically proven to perform. We added HEAT™ to our portfolio to satisfy gym-goers looking for a zero-sugar energy solution and to ride the wave of the popularity of carbonation,” says Vanessa Walker, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We are confident that HEAT™ will continue to drive sales for CELSIUS® and expand our position as the leader in the fitness drink market.”

CELSIUS HEAT™ is a dietary supplement that contains the proprietary thermogenic formula, MetaPlus®, also found in CELSIUS® Original and Natural line extensions, which accelerates metabolism, burns fat and boosts energy when combined with exercise. HEAT™’s 16oz. carbonated can contains 300mg of caffeine and 2,000mg of L-Citrulline. It is designed to serve as a supercharged version of the original CELSIUS® formula, ideal for trainers, body builders, military personnel and endurance athletes looking to optimize their training results.

“This honorable recognition in the Beverage Industry demonstrates our products are leading innovation in the category. HEAT™ is a great tasting proven addition to the CELSIUS® portfolio and further expands the recognition of the award winning CELSIUS® brand,” said Interim CEO and CFO John Fieldly. “Our latest SPINS data shows a 40.6 percent year-over-year increase for our CELSIUS® product portfolio in the MULO channel, which validates our positioning as a healthy, functional fitness drink that resonates with consumers (SPINS, MULO 52wks ending 11.05.17). We are confident that CELSIUS HEAT™ will drive those sales figures even higher.”

Celsius Holdings launched CELSIUS HEAT™ in the fitness channel nationwide early in the second quarter, 2017, featuring three flavors: Inferno Punch, Blueberry Pomegranate and Cherry Lime. In September, we introduced those three flavors to the convenience store channel and also broadened the line with the addition of Strawberry Dragonfruit and Tangerine Grapefruit flavors to the fitness channel.

CELSIUS®’ PROVEN campaign surrounding HEAT™ features platinum recording artist, Flo Rida. Flo Rida personifies the brand and is the newly appointed CELSIUS HEAT™ Elite, Chief Ambassador, who will lead the “HEAT™ Elite,” a hand-picked group of individuals who excel at fitness performance and are PROVEN to excel in their chosen field. He relies on CELSIUS HEAT™ to optimize his training results and give him the healthy energy he needs to rock grueling concerts and workouts. Flo Rida puts a premium on health and fitness and believes in the delicious, thermogenic pre-workout drink. The PROVEN campaign is currently showcased on billboards featuring Flo Rida throughout Florida and Texas.

Rose Parade Float To Honor 29-Year Old Tissue Donor From Newark

Local Resident One of Four New Jerseyans Recognized on the

2018 Rose Parade Donate Life Float

At the January 2018 Rose Bowl Parade, four New Jersey families will be in Pasadena to see the Donate Life Float in the Tournament of Roses Parade. One of these families will be the Garcia family from Newark, NJ. Making its 15th appearance in 2018, the float serves as a memorial to organ and tissue donors and a platform for donor families, living donors and transplant recipients to inspire the world to save and heal those in need through the gift of life.

With support from Donate Life America and other affiliate organizations, NJ Sharing Network, the family and friends of Ezequiel and Iris Garcia will gather in The Learning Center at Clara Maass Medical Center, One Clara Maass Drive in Belleville on Thursday, November 30th at 6:00 PM to finish a floragraph – a portrait that is made from natural materials, such as flowers and seeds in the likeness of organ and tissue donor Reinaldo Garcia, who passed away suddenly in 2011.  Once the floragraph is complete, it will then travel to Pasadena to be placed on the Donate Life Float.

Clara Maass Medical Center is a hospital partner of NJ Sharing Network and where Ezequiel and Iris return to share their son’s story with staff.

García’s floragraph is sponsored by Bridge to Life Ltd, whose mission is to improve organ transplants through licensing and developing new preservation solutions and technologies and providing the highest quality of service to organ procurement organizations and transplant centers.

“It is an honor to partner with Bridge to Life as the Garcia family travels to California to celebrate Reinaldo and the lives he touched,” said Joe Roth, President and CEO, NJ Sharing Network. “The Donate Life Float is a remarkable tribute to the power of organ and tissue donation.”

García, who lived in Newark, NJ became a tissue donor at the age of 29. Growing up, García was a very healthy and active boy, who, early in life, demonstrated a high degree of intelligence, curiosity and ability to play sports. He finished his undergraduate degree in Education and became a Physical Education teacher at a local High School in Newark. He was beginning his sixth year as a teacher when he passed away in September 2011. García had a very pleasant personality and was passionate about everything in life. He loved to coach younger athletes and volunteer for all kind of events and activities. According to his family, offering Reinaldo’s tissue for donation is the most important decision they have ever made. His father, Ezequiel García, and his mother, Iris, are both volunteers of NJ Sharing Network and are passionate advocates of the organization’s mission. Ezequiel recently joined the Foundation Board of Trustees at NJ Sharing Network.

To date, there are over 120,000 people waiting for a transplant and 22 die each day while waiting for a transplant, but one donor can save eight lives and one tissue donor can enhance the lives of over 75 people.  In New Jersey, there are over 4,000 people on the waiting list and one person dies every three days waiting.

New Jersey residents can help save lives by registering as organ and tissue donors at www.NJSharingNetwork.org, talking about it with their families and friends and joining NJ Sharing Network at its next event.
