Company Background

Prime was founded in 1998 after the merger of Pharmacy Gold, a formulary and clinical services provider, and claims processor ProPar Services. Two pioneering Blue Cross and Blue Shield (BCBS) plans saw the potential for a better model. Before 1998, Pharmacy Gold Inc. and ProPar begin sharing staff to serve the two nonprofit health plans in 1993. Within a decade, nonprofit Blue Plans from Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Wyoming and Kansas would jointly own this new model — Prime Therapeutics (Prime).
