As an integrated part of the pharmacy benefit services Script Care, Ltd. provides,
we are pleased to offer our participants an enhanced home delivery program for most major
specialty drug items and biotech medications.
The SCL Specialty Pharmacy Program
focuses on the delivery and management of pharmaceutical products that are generally,
but not exclusively, biotechnological in nature, and on coordinating care for members
required to take these medications.
The Program's drug list includes core treatment therapies for disease states such as:
- Growth Hormone
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Pulmonary Disorders
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Other Various Disease States
While this Program offers significant cost savings for the plan sponsor, it has been
designed to support the needs of the patient's therapy. Along with integrated claims
administration, the Program offers drug therapy benefits
for the patient such as case management, delivery information, customer care support,
home health agency support and nurse consultation regarding the medication.
The medications included in this Program are not items you find behind the counter at the
retail pharmacy. The Program focuses solely on the
of these non-retail medications. The Specialty Pharmacy Customer Care Staff
is readily available for plan members to answer questions regarding the patient's
medication, administering the drug or delivery of the product. For the available
physician-administered therapies, members have the option of delivery to their
doctor's office or their home.
Today, more biotech and injectable medications are making their way into the marketplace.
We find these medications replacing many of the inpatient treatments and practices
certain disease states have required in years prior. Along with the arrival of these
new therapies can be extraordinary costs.
Our Program minimizes many of these costs for plan sponsors and
reduces the time and effort associated with them. Some of the benefits include:
- Increased savings by minimizing health care costs associated with medical U&C
- Deeper discounts available through the Program
- Implementing utilization management controls
- Optimizing prescription compliance
- Reducing multiple providers to improve the coordination of care
- Providing specialty program reporting to help manage overall pharmacy benefit
