How Non-Commercial Pharmacies Accelerate Patients Into Prescription Programs
Patients navigating their wellness journeys face a challenging road. The administrative burdens of specialty medications’ prescribing and approval processes create unnecessary and frustrating hurdles for both health care providers (HCPs) and patients.
For these physicians and their patients, a non-commercial pharmacy (NCP) can transform how patients start and stay on their medication. While their purpose has primarily been supporting “free good” pharmaceutical programs, NCPs offer much more value. They serve as a virtual holding area for a prescription that is sent to a dispensing pharmacy once benefit verifications, prior authorizations, copay programs and other fulfillment needs are completed.
