Blountstown natives Terry Yon and Steve Whitfieldjoin forces
Save Florida taxpayers $13 million
During his first term in office,
Governor Jeb. Bush announced
his emphasis on public-private
partnerships as a means of
reducing costs, improving effi-
ciency, spurring innovation and
stimulating the economy. Some
of the partnerships that subse-
quently evolved failed to live up
to expectations. But a notable
exception is the Florida
Department of Corrections' asso-
ciation with TYA, a Tallahassee
pharmaceutical -firm with a
strong Blountstown connection.
In 1996, the DOC interpreted
state statutes as allowing phar-
maceutical services -- like other
healthcare services -- to be
exempt from state contract bid-
ding requirements. As a result,
the Department began looking at
how it could develop a working
relationship with a private phar-
.maceutical firm that could tailor
its operations to meet specific
DOC needs not being met by
other suppliers in the market-
Today, the DOC Office of
Health Services reports that the
business arrangement the
agency established with the pri-
vate firm, Terry Yon & Associates
(TYA), has saved Florida taxpay-
ers approximately 813 million in
the cost of pharmaceutical serv-
ices between 1998 and 2005. In
an environment characterized by
staggering increases in the costs
of prescription drugs, the DOC
has seen its prescription costs
drop to an average increase of
only 3 percent a year over the
past two years. During the first
three years of this decade, the
DOC's drug costs averaged
increasing just under 10 percent
annually -- significantly below
the national average.
TYA was founded by
Blountsto\\vn native Terry. Yon,,
who owns and operates the busi-
ness. Terry is the son of Terrell
and Norma Eubanks Y on of
Blountstown. Steve Whitfield of
Blountstown, formerly pharmacy
manager for the .state
Department of Corr sections. is
TYA's director of operations and

medications in plastic cups.
Unit-dosing was a DOC prionty.
because of the frequent abuses
expenenced when inmates had
access to larger doses of medica-
tion in solid tablet for m.
On January 1. 1998. the DOC
signed a contract with TYA under
which the firm began providing
unit-dosed liquid psychotr opic
medications TYA was then -
and still is the ony FDA-
licensed company in existence
that provides all known \ liquid
psychotropic medications in unit
doses at any requested strength.
Subsequently. the DOC asked
TYA to develop large unit dose
packaging fcal bags containing
single doses greater than one
ounce. Again 1TA invested its
time and money in the develop -
mental work necessary to fulfill
the DOC's request and today TYA
provides individual doses of up
to three ounces. Individual doses;
that large are not available from
any other pharmaceutical sup-
plier in the country.
Then in late 2001 the DOC
approached TYA about expand-
ing the contract to encompass all
medications both liquid and
solid in unit doses. TYA, in
turn. developed unit dose strips
and a "bingo card" arrangement
for packaging oral solid medica-
tions. In vie\\ of its ongoing rela-
tionship with the DOC. the firm
expanded to a new physical
plant, added staff positions and
secured the assistance of con-
sultants to make sure its opera-
tions were in compliance \with
Further. it made a major
investment in r packaging

current and future needs.

yielded significant improvements
in patient service, operational
efficiency and expense savings
Understandably. DOC officials
felt this was a "'win-\win" situa-
The DOC estimated that the
new packaging system enabled it
to save S1.6 million annually in
salaries and benefits. The
arrangement \with TYA allowed
the DOC to streamline its deliv-
ery of medications to inmates
and to close pharmacies in two
locations. These chances and a
ne\w pharmacy computer system
enabled the DOC to save or
reduce inventories by appro.ai-
mately 82 rrulion per year. \Widle
the DOC has reaped significant
benefits from the partnership.
TYA has faced challenges in
turning a profit
The burgeoning Tallahassee
pharmaceutical firm has
incurred substantial R&D costs.
And since it purchases and
resells medications to the DOC at
wholesale cost minus a discount,
it must rely on "card fees" and
prompt-payment discounts from
suppliers to cover its operating
.expenses and generate a modest
profit. Card fees represent TYA's
cost of handling, packaging and
shipping prescriptions ordered
by the DOC. TYA even absorbs
the cost of tablets br oken during
the packaging process, which -
on an annual basis r esults in
significant cost avoidance for the
The DOC-TYA contract con-
tains other provisions that also
benefit the taxpayers of Florida.
From the inception of the part-
nership, TYA has had a "r eturn
policy" that makes the firm the
most customer-friendly in the
During the year 2003 the DOC
returned unused medications to
TYA that bore a $1.7 million price
tag and the Department
received full cr edit for -all
returns. In 20 Q4 the DOC
received credit for over 81 million
for returned medications. TYA's
return policy combined with its
ability to deliver medications
within 24 hours fr om receipt of
an order -- has allowed the DOC
to reduce the inventory of drugs
stocked in its, dispensing loca-
tions. Thus the Department is
enjoying the benefits of the "just-
in-time"supply process that has
been adopted by successful busi-
nesses around the world.

Business owner discusses advantages of..
Working with independent agent
No one likes to go-shopping
and have just one option to
choose from -- and that is exact-
ly why working with an inde-
pendent insurance agent is so
beneficial. says Janet Pooser of
Brooke Insurance Agency of
"Many clients and even neigh-
bors and friends ask me 'What's
the difference between working
with an independent agent and
working with an insurance carri-
er directly?"' Pooser says.
According to Pooser, there are
three major reasons for going
with an independent agency
when you are shopping for insur-
1. You have more choices.
One of the advantages to working
with a local independent agent is
you can have someone walk you
through all of your choices.
"As a local Brooke franchise
owner, I have been able to give
my clients many options because
we offer a broad access to insur-
ance products through various
carriers. We're not limited to just
one major carrier," Pooser says.
"At Brooke Insurance Agency of
Marianna. we are unique
because we are locally owned,
but we are able to use the buying
power and operational model of a
large corporation, which can be a
great benefit to locate a policy
that best meets our customer's

should feel comfortable enough
to talk to your insurance agent
about what your needs are. You
shouldn't feel like you are being

'Your agent will take the time
to find out more about you and
ask you questions such as: Do
you have teenage drivers? What
kind of home insurance would
work best for you? Do you need
to worry about getting additional

Pooser explains. By getting to

and your household,, they can lay

Florida ranks 35th out of the

'pu'ttingur--childrenr'-n- the- bot-
tom third of the nation, accord-
ing to the Annie E. Casey
Foundation 2004 Kids Count
Florida's ranking on infant
mortality and low birth weight is
certainly a concern. Infant mor-
talit- is a baby's death during
the first year of life and is con-
sidered to be a sentinel indicator
of the health of a community.
Low birth weight babies, born
less than 5 Ibs. 8 oz.. are usual-
ly premature and have a greater
risk of dying. Fortunately. with
medical advances. many of these
babies survive: however they are
more likely to have costly long.
Why are Florida's rates get-:
ting worse? In 1992 the legisla-
ture created Healthy Start., a
statewide'--program-- that serves
pregnant women and infants
with risk factors. Originally
funded to serve only 46% of the
estimated need, the program still
showed success with declining
rates of infant mortality and low
birth weight. Since then Healthy
Start has not received an,
increase in fuiiding to serve addi-
tional clients even with an addi-
tional 20,000 births per yearI
statewide as of 2005.
Because our state is not mak-
ing the investment to keep up
with an ,increase in population
and needs, gains achieved in the ,
90's have stalled. In addition,
there are approximately 650.000
uninsured women of childbear-
ing age in Florida. This com-
pounds the problem as research
shows the health of the mother
before pregnancy ,can determine
the baby's health at birth.
Uninsured people don't receive
regular preventative health care.
Every dollar spent on pre\en-
tion and early identification of
problems saves nearly eight dol-
lars m later costs. A healthy
baby's hospital stay costs about.
$3,500, a low birth weight baby's
stay costs about S20.000.
Healthy Start services cost an
average of 8374 per year for each
We must recommit ourselves
to a healthy start for every child.

We Have Problems to Learn
How to Help Others
Text: 2 Cor. 1:3-7
A story found in "Broken Things" tells
about a block of ebony The wood was
griping and complaining bitterly because
the craftsman who owned it was shaving
it down, cutting it, and drilling holes, in it.
No matter how much the wdbd com-.
plained the craftsman paid no attention.
Finally the craftsman said, "Little piece of
wood, without these holes, and all this
cutting, you would be a black stick forev-
er just a useless piece of ebony. What
I am doing now may make you think that
I am destroying you, but, instead. I will
change you into a flute, and your sweet
music will charm the souls of men and
comfort many a sorrowing heart. My cut-
ting you is the making of you, for only
thus can you be a blessing in the world."
Paul said, "...the God of all com-
Sfort...comforts us in all our troubles, so
that we can comfort those in any trou-
ble..." It can be a good thing whenever
a person who is hurting can find some-
one who has gone through the exact
same hurt victonously. There is a cenain
kinship between two such people.
God will often use people who have
suffered through trials in a Chnst-like
manner to comfort others in a very
Unique and special way. Such a person
can identity and sympathize with those
who go through the same thing. Such a
person is a living testimony of hope to
those who are suffering. Wisdom that
comes from practical experience can be

Dear Gadsden. Liberty & Calhoun
Two years ago I obtained my Florida
Dealer's License due to the frustration of
shopping for a used car. The following three
things.made car shopping a big headache
for me: '
*Haggling for the best price,
SHaving to come.UP with. $2000 to $3000
for'a down payment, taxe's title and tag
AN EXPECTANT MOTHER was fortunate to walk away virtually unscathed from ah accident Monday morn-::
ing, Jennifer Brown of Blountstowri was traveling along .John' F. 3ole., Roioocl her i-.she hit a bump in the road
and. landed in a ditch,.nearly striking a tree. Brown, who is eight months pregnant with a baby girl, was:'
alone at the time and there were no other car.; o'n the road. She :jlle-d her mother, Faye Brown, from a cell
phone and told her she had crashed. "I could barely understand her, she was crying so much," said Faye
who called authorities, i-rnbjiourane workers from Errier.,' tt orri ed and found Brown trapped in the car
due to the fact the driver's side door was smashed into the ditch. They helped her out through the pas-
ieraer d.or rand found she only had a couple scrapes and scratches. "It just scared her," said her mom.
The accident woi iriv.estigated bt the :lorlda Higha,..a Patrol.
