WHAT ABOUT CLOSED NETWORKS?

The process of prior authorization and reimbursement is frustrating and time-consuming — for you, your staff and your patients. Saluvitas is highly experienced in all facets of the prior authorization process, saving you valuable time to spend with your patients. For closed networks, Saluvitas simply processes prior authorizations and transfers the prescription to a pharmacy that can fill the medication, removing the ambiguity and guesswork that comes when dealing with multiple pharmacies.

ELIMINATE THE COST, COMPLEXITY AND SIDE EFFECTS THAT DEPRESS PATIENT ADHERENCE RATES

Saluvitas Specialty Care’s skilled pharmacists have over 20 cumulative years of expertise across a multitude of disease states such as HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C and multiple sclerosis.

By coordinating patients’ full medication needs, Saluvitas helps remove the barriers that can lead to sub-optimal clinical outcomes:

  • Confusion about the prior authorization process
  • Complexity navigating multiple pharmacies
  • No oversight for potential drug interactions

GIVE YOUR PATIENTS THE BEST CHANCE FOR A POSITIVE OUTCOME

According to the National Council on Patient Information and Education, “Lack of medication adherence is America’s other drug problem.” That is especially true for older patients and those managing chronic conditions such as HIV, hepatitis C, or multiple sclerosis with specialty medications.

THE DIRECT CORRELATION BETWEEN ADHERENCE AND SUCCESS

Multiple research studies across various disease states have demonstrated the relationship between adherence and mortality. And with an increasing focus on self-administered therapies, the problem is likely to get worse, not better. You want the best possible outcome for your patients, but you and your staff can only do so much when it comes to patient education, coordination of benefits, prior authorization and reimbursement – all complex, time-consuming and vital activities.
