August 4, 2020 – Devon, PA – Coeus Consulting Group, a leading boutique life science consulting firm focused in market access, today announced it has hired Doug Brown as the Senior Vice President of Value and Access to help grow and manage the company’s enhanced market access offerings.
Brown brings more than 30 years of pharmacy management experience, the last 18 years working with Magellan Rx where his focus was on government markets, working to address strategies that help improve operational efficiency and stakeholder value in Medicaid.

“All of Coeus welcomes Doug to the team, a true expert in Medicaid he will add critical value and insights to our internal team and clients,” said Marc Hixson, CEO of Coeus. “Also, with a final ruling on value-based contracting agreements and their effect on best price coming from CMS in the near future, his expertise will prove invaluable as we continue to innovate and support clients bringing their drugs to market.”
