Advanzeon Solutions, Inc.'s Wholly-Owned Subsidiary Pharmacy Value Management Solutions, Inc. Signs Sales and Marketing Agreement With Rampart Benefit Planning, Inc.

TAMPA, Fla., Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanzeon Solutions, Inc. (OTC:BB: CHCR) ("Advanzeon" or the "Company"), a leading behavioral health, wellness and pharmacy management provider for employers, Taft-Hartley health and welfare funds and managed care companies, today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Pharmacy Value Management Solutions, Inc. ("PVMS"), has entered into an agreement with Rampart Benefit Planning, Inc., part of The Rampart Group, Inc. ("Rampart").   The agreement calls for Rampart to provide sales and marketing services to PVMS in connection with PVMS' unique and innovative pharmacy savings and behavioral/wellness programs, offering its clients a guaranteed minimum savings of ten percent (10%) on their annual pharmacy spend, backed by a performance bond. 

Rampart has multiple distribution channels in which to offer the PVMS solution, including, current clients with large, self-insured employee benefit programs; prospective clients that have significant pharmacy benefit expenses to manage; relationships with investment companies that advise large employer groups and the companies in which they invest; associations of professional organizations and a consortium with over 100 institutional members in the New York metropolitan area.  Servicing self-insured groups, unions, commercial businesses and municipalities, Rampart sets itself apart from other insurance brokerage agencies and consultants by an unparalleled commitment to its clients and a strong sense of its history.

Ramon Martinez, President of PVMS said, "Rampart and PVMS share a common commitment to provide access to affordable, high-quality healthcare to every organization that Rampart and PVMS work with. Lowering pharmacy costs and improving the health and well being of any general population is a key element in achieving that goal. In this time of change and uncertainty for the financing of healthcare programs, I see a tremendous opportunity to take advantage of the synergy between our organizations and do some real good in reducing the costs of healthcare on a national scope."

Mr. Evan Portnoy, President of Rampart Benefit Planning, Inc. stated, "The Rampart organization has a goal of creatively working to reduce the cost of healthcare for our clients, their employees and their dependents while maintaining access to a high level of healthcare coverage. We are relentless in our pursuit of quality cost savings. Part of this goal is to offer group medical products and solutions unique to the marketplace. We have reviewed PVMS' program and are convinced it offers a very creative and competitive solution to the pharmacy benefit management dilemma currently facing our healthcare clients. The opportunity to work with PVMS and its program is very exciting and I look forward to having Rampart participate very actively in the process. We have already identified several situations in which to introduce to the program, and we intend to work diligently to systematically integrate the PVMS solution into our various programs."

"With Rampart's prestigious background, client base and excellent contacts, PVMS anticipates entering into numerous union and other contracts in the coming months," said Mr. Martinez.
