Managed Markets Services at Covance

Managed Market Services assists you throughout the labor-intensive, time-consuming and costly contract management process. Our team works with healthcare companies to provide sourcing options that control expenses, while offering you the flexibility of using only the services and staff you need, when you need them.

Our Capabilities

Market Access contract lifecycle management (CLM) solutions are increasingly costly. Your future contracts, whether they are Federal, State (FSS, Part D, State, or Medicaid) and commercial contracts, need familiarity with government policy and a flexible operations model to execute them. We partner with you to improve efficiency and ROI – before you launch— with a minimal upfront investment. The result? A simpler service platform.

Our Strategic Operations Model streamlines the contract process, from a la carte services to a full, end-to-end contract life cycle management system. With advanced technology to manage all aspects of contract setup, management, compliance and performance, you focus on core business activities. 

Our Contracting Approach examines the deal structure strategy by channel; your strategy for contracts (traditional and non-traditional, and coupons/evouchers); and completing the Veloxis template.

When the program is established, we monitor and manage contract load and maintenance; membership and eligibility management; formulary and class of trade management; contract performance metrics; administration fees processing; and knowledge repository, workflows, portal capabilities, and dashboard reporting.

MMS keeps you compliant with government benefits and pricing, supplying administrative support for chargebacks and 340B processes; Managed Care, Part D, Tricare, and Coverage gap rebate processing; federal and state Medicaid rebate processing; and sales based and specialty rebates processing.

Our proprietary technology platform enables your system to respond to changing business needs. You’ll work with revenue management and recognition solutions to calculate government pricing without the cost of system implementation or upgrades.

Seamlessly manage all types, including Average Manufacturer’s Price, Best Price, Average Sales Price, 340B - Public Health Services (PHS), Non-federal Average Manufacturers Price (NFAMP), Federal Calling Price, Federal Supply Schedule Price (FSS), and Unit Rebate Amount/Rebate Per Unit.
