Krista joined MedImpact in 2018, and quickly rose through the ranks to her most recent role as Vice President, Sales and Strategic Relations.

It is an approach that delivers forward-thinking utilization management, higher levels of member engagement, and low year-over-year trend. Today, MedImpact is the largest independent PBM, serving government and commercial health plans and self-insured employers, and 55 million consumers globally.

“In a market in which large, publicly held healthcare conglomerates are trying to crowd out competition and limit choices, MedImpact is the PBM with the scale, clinical expertise, and technology to provide payers – especially those with complex needs – a real alternative,” said Kelley. “The market is looking for us to compete on every level and our entire company is inspired by this mission.”
