MedOne Celebrating 25 Years of Doing Things Differently

How MedOne Started

MedOne Pharmacy Benefit Solutions was founded on April 16, 1999, by Richard Hartig, of Hartig Drug Company. While filling prescriptions in the pharmacy one day, he noticed a discrepancy: as a self-funded employer, he was being charged much more than he should have been for prescriptions; there was an extra “cut” of profit that the PBM was taking. After further investigating, he set out to provide a more up-front, transparent alternative to the traditional PBM model for business owners like him. 

MedOne was nominated as one of the Best Places to Work in Dubuque.

Since then, MedOne has grown to a team of over 100 employees in the Dubuque area and beyond, serving more than 260 clients with members in all 50 states. They focus on challenging the traditional spread-based PBM model and instead, provide a transparent, pass-through option where all rebates and upside are passed on to their clients.  

What We Do

MedOne is a Pharmacy Benefit Manager (PBM). They work with self-funded employers to provide benefits to their employees in a way that is cost-effective for them while also meeting the needs of their members. MedOne owns all their own capabilities, meaning that they process their own claims, execute their own pharmacy contracting, build and manage their formularies, and service their own clients and members; when members call about prescriptions, they always get to speak with a MedOne employee.

MedOne’s pharmacy benefit plans are custom-built to the specifications of their clients. When clients choose MedOne, the client chooses the kind of benefit they offer their employees. MedOne offers a full suite of proprietary clinical programs as well as cost containment solutions that ensure whatever clients are looking for, they can find a solution with MedOne.

Why We Are Different

MedOne is rooted in strong, Midwest family values focusing on working hard, caring for our clients and members with compassion, communicating effectively, and doing the right things for the right reasons; pieces of the MedOne Core Values that employees exemplify day in and day out. In an industry that’s overcomplicated and muddied, MedOne strives to provide a more focused, transparent alternative to clients looking to do things differently.
