Compounded medications may cost less than you think…
A patient recently told us about having her compounded medication filled for her daughter at another pharmacy. The pharmacy had told her that insurance did not cover the medication and the out of pocket cost for them to make the medication was over $300. She had the prescription sent to us at University Compounding Pharmacy where she paid $42 for the same medication.
University Compounding Pharmacy proudly announces its achievement of PCAB accreditation, a service of ACHC, of both sterile and non-sterile compounding. The accreditation is awarded in recognition of the pharmacy’s commitment to meeting and/or exceeding national quality standards.
Achieving accreditation is a process where healthcare organizations demonstrate compliance with national standards. PCAB accreditation reflects an organization’s dedication and commitment to meeting standards that facilitate a higher level of performance and patient care.
Express Scripts (ESI) has launched a new program that will exclude a majority of compounded prescriptions from coverage (with a few exceptions). The goal of this program is to save ESI’s clients money; however, it may have the unintended consequence of preventing access to the compounded medications many patients rely on.
