History of Southern Scripts

Southern Scripts was developed by pharmacists because there was a vital need for a 100% transparent/pass-through pharmacy benefit manager. After thirty-four years in retail pharmacy, Nolton Causey RPh had seen plenty of traditional PBM abuse to members, pharmacies and the community. Discussions with LIPA, Louisiana Independent Pharmacies Association, led to the realization that there was a major Fraud Waste and Abuse issue occurring with PBMs and people should be advised to seek other alternatives. However, after searching for a solution to this problem, there was the realization that there was no alternative to the typical PBMs abusing the system.

To solve this problem, Nolton, daughter LeAnn, and son-in-law Steve, decided to create a different kind of pharmacy benefit manager. LeAnn Causey Boyd, PharmD, daughter of Nolton Causey, worked with Beyond Rx, a transparent PBM, for years in managing their clinical program. Her clinical background also led to multiple opportunities with employer groups to manage costs and improve health outcomes by working one-on-one with employees. Partnering with husband Steven T. Boyd, PharmD, they also began pioneering medication management programs, specialty pharmacy solutions to the mass market. With years of clinical experience and an education-based background, Steve obtained multiple areas of expertise in optimizing employee benefits health. Furthermore, all three worked daily in retail pharmacy and saw the abuse issues with PBMs and were ready to create something better.

Our goal is to provide employers with the tools to provide access to prescription medication in order to achieve optimal health outcomes. This goal must be achieved through wise resource management and elimination of unmerited industry practices. Our mission is to restore balance between the need for sound prescription management strategies and meeting the health needs of employees and their families.

Not All PBMs Are Created Equal.
