Former Deputy Mayor of Muncie named to Governmental Liaison post by leading International Pharmacy Benefits Manager

Muncie (Special)— Phyllis J. Amburn, the former Deputy Mayor of Muncie, IN , has been named Governmental Liaison/Indiana for CanaRx Services Inc., a leading international Pharmacy Benefits Manager.

In making the announcement, G. Anthony Howard, President and CEO of CanaRx, cites Ms. Amburn’s municipal and private sector experience as a positive addition to the Company.

Ms. Amburn’s contributions to management and solutions in areas of labor relations, personnel, health care, budgets and many special projects will benefit her in this new position with CanaRx. Ms. Amburn obtained a Masters Degree in Executive Development for Public Service from Ball State University and is a native Hoosier.

“Ms. Amburn’s leadership and vision in the establishment, launch and administration of ‘MuncieMeds’ was crucial to its success for both the city and employees,” says Howard.

“This employee-sponsored voluntary program utilizes CanaRx to supply international prescription medications to city employees, their dependents and eligible retirees, who elect to participate.

"Through CanaRx, ’MuncieMeds’ participants pay zero co-payments and the city has realized well over $1 million in savings since plan inception.”

“Underfunded strained budgets are one of the biggest concerns for local governments,” says Ms. Amburn.

“I have witnessed first-hand the financial benefits provided through CanaRx and I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experience with local governments throughout Indiana. Cutting services and laying off employees are not the only solutions.” .

“CanaRx programs provide safe affordable international prescription medications to over 100 groups including six municipalities and county governments within the state of Indiana,” says Howard. “We are proud to welcome Phyllis J. Amburn to our team"
