Vivian, Louisiana (PRWEB) May 08, 2017
Benzer Pharmacy, an independent pharmacy has today announced its partnership with North Caddo Medical Center.
The purpose of the partnership is to conveniently offer 340B drugs to vulnerable patient populations throughout the United States.
North Caddo Medical Center, located on 1000 S., Spruce Street, Vivian, LA was established in 1965.
The medical center offers several services including: cardiopulmonary, lab & blood bank, mental health, acute, rehab, dietary, nutritional, and more. The medical center also offers a rare combination of advanced healthcare capabilities and exceptional care for all the families it serves.
“Benzer is excited and is looking forward to our new partnership with North Caddo Medical Center,” says Ryan Geoghagan, Benzer Pharmacy 340B Program Director.
“This is a huge opportunity for patients who use North Caddo because they can now also use Benzer Pharmacy for all their medication needs,” he adds.
This is Benzer's second 340B contract after signing its first contract last year with Bliss Healthcare Services.
“Our vision is to maintain a compliant 340B program with the aim of creating opportunities for savings and choosing the right 340B partner is one of Benzer’s priorities.”
Benzer Pharmacy located at 202 South Ave Ste A Vivian, LA 71082 has already begun accepting 340B prescriptions from the medical center.
“Participating in a 340B program offers many benefits for contract pharmacies, including increased store traffic, better access to discounted medications and improved healthcare for patients. Our goal is to become the preferred contracted pharmacy to all the covered entities within this geographical area,” Ryan concludes.
340B program provides an opportunity for community pharmacies to provide additional access to specific patients who need discounted prescription drugs. The program also gives the community pharmacy an opportunity to add a revenue stream to its existing business model and enables it to become further involved with patient care.
340B is a U.S Federal Government program that requires drug manufacturers to provide outpatient drugs to eligible health care organizations/covered entities at significantly reduced prices.
