History

In 2009 the City of Everett was at the end of their Pharmacy Benefit Management contract with CVScaremark. Seeking a solution for rapidly increasing costs, their consultant discovered a group of large employers in the Midwest that had joined together to leverage their purchasing power. The Employers Health Coalition of Ohio, with 125 employers and $700 million annual drug spend, comprised one of the largest drug purchasing blocks in the US with. Coincidentally, CVScaremark was their PBM partner. A study to assess the potential economic advantage of joining the EHCO indicated that joining the EHCO would result in a 17% reduction in Rx costs.

In 2010, The EHCW was incorporated as a non profit (501-C-6) in order to provide Washington employers with access to this advantaged purchasing channel. EHCW is a member organization of Employers Health Coalition of Ohio. The EHCO has since changed its name to Employers Health.
