Stop in and meet the pharmacist team & staff of Southern Scripts, LLC.
SouthernScripts was developed by pharmacists because there was a vital need for a 100% transparent/pass-through pharmacy benefit manager. After thirty-four years in retail pharmacy, Nolton Causey, RPh, had seen plenty of traditional PBM abuse to members, pharmacies and the community. Discussions with LIPA, Louisiana Independent Pharmacies Association, led to the realization that there was a major Fraud Waste and Abuse issue occurring with PBMs and people should be advised to seek other alternatives. However, after searching for a solution to this problem, there was the realization that there was no alternative to the typical PBMs abusing the system.
To solve this problem, Nolton, daughter LeAnn, and son-in-law Steve, decided to create their own different kind of pharmacy benefit manager. Today, SouthernScripts turned five (5) years old!
SouthernScripts is a national pass-through Prescription Benefit Manager providing services for 10’s of thousands of employees located in 38 states nationwide.
