Altamonte Springs, FL (PRWEB) March 12, 2015
The ‘Pay It Forward’ campaign developed by BioPlus Specialty Pharmacy (BioPlus), one of the nation’s leading specialty pharmacies, will be continuing in 2015. With the Pay It Forward program, BioPlus partners with several non-profit patient foundations by making donations for every referral received at our specialty pharmacy.
Since starting the program, BioPlus donated $75,000 through Pay It Forward to multiple patient foundations and this program will continue to provide donations in 2015. These foundations provide grants and co-pay assistance to help cover high co-pays and deductibles for patients in financial need who are facing complex diseases. The donations from BioPlus help these foundations reach more patients who would otherwise be unable to afford their specialty medications.
In addition to Pay It Forward’s donations to patient foundations, BioPlus provides direct assistance to patients who would benefit from being connected to foundations, by helping process foundation paperwork for patients and stay on top of grant renewals to ensure uninterrupted treatment. Last year, BioPlus’ patient financial assistance program assisted patients with over $12.5 million in grants, co-pays, and donations.
Pay It Forward is linked to another program at BioPlus: the ‘2-Hour Patient Acceptance Guarantee’ which provides fast turn-around from patient referral to acceptance. This guarantee lets physicians quickly know if their patients are admitted pending insurance qualifications or are non-admitted and will need to be transferred to another pharmacy.
