OptumRx, a UnitedHealth Group company, with over 28,000 employees globally, specializes in the delivery, clinical management and affordability of prescription medications and consumer health products. Our goal is to deliver high-quality, integrated services to promote optimal outcomes, superior savings and outstanding client and consumer experiences. We make healthier happen by creating smarter health care connections to help more than 65 million consumers nationwide realize improved care, lower costs and a better overall experience. Leveraging expertise, flexible technology and a network of over 67,000 community pharmacies, and the use of our own state-of-the-art specialty and home delivery pharmacies and fulfillment centers, we are driving value to those we serve through our transforming capabilities. This is a place like no other and where you'll do your life's best work.(sm)

The Associate Director of Industry Relations negotiates with Pharmaceutical Manufacturers for rebate discounts while working with cross functional internal teams (Finance/Accounting, Clinical, Legal, Contract Specialist, Client Management) to assure that OptumRx is managing Therapeutic Classes, following clinical guidelines, to achieve the lowest net cost for our clients by executing contracts that are in compliance with business goals and objectives. This is a challenging, very visible individual contributor role where you can make an impact on healthcare costs. Ideally, candidates will be located at one of our UHG locations, though we may consider a telecommuting role for a stellar candidate.

You'll enjoy the flexibility to telecommute* from anywhere within the U.S. as you take on some tough challenges.

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Develop, recommend, and execute contracting strategies in a timely manner that meet both short term and long term objectives and the needs of clients with membership in the Commercial, Medicare, and Managed Medicaid lines of business
  • Direct others to assist in resolution of business challenges associated with the prosecution and maintenance of formulary contracts with pharmaceutical manufacturers
  • Have the ability to work on multiple projects or contracts simultaneously while meeting business timelines
  • Evaluate, interpret, negotiate, and update contract language associated with the agreements between OptumRx and pharmaceutical manufacturers
  • Detailed clinical information associated with various disease states and contracted medications associated with a pharmaceutical company along with all medications that compete within the same category as the contracted medications
  • Basic construct of various books of business and how each operate (e.g. Medicare, Commercial, Managed Medicaid)
  • The use and differences among formulary utilization management tools
  • Financial modeling and analytics associated with therapeutic class reviews and strategies aimed at achieving the lowest net cost for our clients

You'll be rewarded and recognized for your performance in an environment that will challenge you and give you clear direction on what it takes to succeed in your role as well as provide development for other roles you may be interested in.
