IF YOU MAKE medication purchases through a traditional AWP discount-based model or per-diem arrangement, then you're simply paying too much.

There is only ONE definition of a TRULY pass-through purchasing model; and it must always include the “client's ability to audit the hospice pharmacy provider at any time,” along with the identification within the contract of “what the pass-through rates are” (like MAC or Maximum Allowable Cost) that will be paid to dispensing pharmacies (or the PBM/Mail Order provider if they are doing the dispensing themselves).

When you THINK you have two similar offerings, be sure to have any potential pharmacy vendors complete an apples-to-apples cost comparison to reveal what you may be missing.

If you look at the majority of our hospice PBM competitors, they tend to operate NON-transparent/ NON-pass-through type business models that costs clients far more money than they know.

This has been the status quo for years, as they continue to be owned and operated (or operating with) venture capitalist/wall-street-driven folks that demand unrealistic profits for the services they provide.

...AND THEN CAME HO$PICE TAPER.

PBM SERVICES INCLUDE:

  • Utilize a preferred local network of pharmacies for same-day service, while ensuring that the majority of your medication dollars are spent within your community.
  • Purchase medications at already contracted rates, representing the deepest discounts available in the industry−always in a TRULY “transparent & pass-through” fashion.
  • When necessary, medications can be delivered via  local courier or by select local pharmacies. Utilize optional mail order service should you be caring for a patient that does not qualify for local delivery, or has a specialty need.

Traditional mail order programs DO NOT provide hospices with the formulary flexibility, business transparency, financial creativity, necessary technology, or regulatory cushioning to operate effectively.
