Specialty medications are used to treat complex & chronic conditions, and are by far the leading class of medication dispensed by a pharmacy. Generally, these conditions can be defined as behavioral, physical, progressive, or developmental that may have no known cure and is debilitating or fatal if left untreated. While specialty medications are a very important part of a patient’s healthcare regimen, they can be very costly. They generally also require special handling and help administering.
ProHealth Pharmacy Solutions has always been dedicated to finding our patients the most cost-effective option for their needs. We recognize the importance of being a patient’s advocate even more so in a time where the COVID-19 pandemic has affected so many financially. We believe that every patient should have access to the medication they need and we want to help reduce any financial distress that may affect patients and their families if they are unable to afford the treatment. If a patient has lost their job and or insurance due to the pandemic, our Specialty branch will research and do their utmost to find a program that will help the patient with medication expenses.
Many of these programs may help cover part of, or the whole cost amount of the medication. Some of these programs have even offered free drug coverage for up to a year for their patients who are no longer covered by insurance. If multiple programs exist, we will take the time to properly explain each, so the patient has the knowledge to pick the best service best suited to their individual needs. Assuming that a patient does not qualify for one of the programs, we will still inquire to see if we can find them any additional options. We also handle the claim submission process on the patient’s behalf.
We have also developed extensive relationships with the Co-pay Assistance representatives, which gives us access to the latest and most prevalent information on how we can better serve our patients. There is so much to think about when adjusting to our new normal; however drug coverage does not have to be one of them. We genuinely care about our patients and their families, and we want to make these times easier for them. Here at ProHealth Pharmacy Solutions, we will continue to make exceptional patient care our first priority no matter the circumstance.
