Heritage Awarded Camp Lejeune Family Members’ Contract
Building on the success of a top-notch prescription services program delivered to veterans, James L. Rosengren, chairman and CEO of Heritage Health Solutions, Inc. (Heritage), today announced the company was awarded the Camp Lejeune Family Members prescription services contract by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). With this contract, prescription services will now be available to veterans’ dependents who resided at the United States Marine Corps base, Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, between 1957 and 1987.
“At Heritage, we recognize that family is the foundation to military life,” said James L. Rosengren, MHA, ACHE Fellow (FACHE). “Therefore, we are extremely proud to provide prescription services to veterans’ dependents—those who have made sacrifices to support the military member.”
“Heritage’s commitment to improving veterans’ lives is not just limited to its pharmacy services program,”Lisa Rosengren, vice chair and senior advisor at Heritage.
Founded in 2005, Heritage continues to deliver first and emergent fill pharmacy services to one million veterans at more than 600 VA medical clinics across the country. Heritage also delivers an integrated network of health care and administrative services that support the U.S. Marshals National Managed Care Contract. Most recently, the company stepped in to assist in eliminating the backlog veterans are experiencing. Heritage’s solution included extending the 14-day supply of prescription medications to a 30-day supply. This step enhances the veteran’s access to medical care. Because of Heritage’s outstanding outreach and accessibility to veteran populations, this summer, the company was awarded the Best of the Best Award from U.S. Veterans Magazine.
“Heritage’s commitment to improving veterans’ lives is not just limited to its pharmacy services program,” said Lisa Rosengren, vice chair and senior advisor at Heritage. “The company partners with local nonprofit organizations and veteran organizations to identify and assist veterans in special times of need. Heritage’s Help a Hero program provided material to repair a disabled veteran’s home, supplied pontoon boats for a weekend fishing excursion, hosted wounded warriors at Texas Rangers baseball games and sponsored an adaptive sports program for wounded warriors. Heritage is proud to serve those who serve our country.”
