Save Money on Your Speciality Spending
Specialty medications take a specialized touch and expertise – in terms of manufacturing, handling, storage, administration, and monitoring. Specialty pharmacies ideally provide high-touch services that aren’t available at a retail or mail-order pharmacy. All these touch-points not only benefit health outcomes, they also significantly reduce costs by preventing waste and inappropriate utilization.
Payer Frequently Asked Questions
At SimfaRose Pharmacy, our dedicated staff has years of experience working with patients, providers and payers. We understand the unique needs associated with complex medical conditions. Our diverse organization has specialists in virtually every area of clinical practice and disease state. SimfaRose staff members are familiar with manufacturer supported patient assistance programs as well as generic equivalents which provide the same therapeutic effects as brand name drugs but cost patients and payers 30-80% less on average. As a PCAB, ACHC and BOC accredited pharmacy, we maintain the highest quality controls to ensure maximum product utilization with a minimum of waste and abuse. This, along with the extremely competitive pricing we are able to secure from product manufacturers, allows us to pass savings directly on to our patients and payers.
In the United States, it is estimated that lack of adherence causes approximately 125,000 deaths each year and at least 10% of hospitalizations with chronic conditions leading the way in greatest non-adherence rates. The IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics estimates that implementing improvements in medical adherence could mitigate $105.4 billion in avoidable costs annually.
Given these statistics, positive patient outcomes and improved adherence are a primary concern at SimfaRose. We offer a service that can remind patients when it is time to take their medication or request a refill. This service is available at no cost to our patients. We also provide monthly wellness checks to address any questions or concerns patients have about their medication. And because patients may have questions any time of the day or night, we always have an available pharmacist 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
