Troy, MI (PRWEB) May 16, 2013

As the Specialty Pharmacy industry progressively transforms, pharmaceutical therapies continually become more complex and the new health care reform begins to impact reimbursement landscapes, locally based Pharmacy Advantage Specialty Pharmacy takes action to innovatively bring about solutions. By creating a niche role in complete Medication Therapy Management, Pharmacy Advantage strives to prevent potential adverse effects from escalating into health complications or hospitalizations. Within this scope, the organization has maintained a solid concentration on customized care to generate improved clinical outcomes. Although, treatments of chronic conditions have become increasingly multifaceted with regards to compounded drug therapies and complicated access navigation, Pharmacy Advantage works diligently to simplify the process. Due to cultivated partnerships with national non-profit patient assistance foundations as well as medication manufacturers, the company’s funding department has successfully obtained significantly over one million dollars in copay support during 2012. Furthermore, by the end of 2013 it is projected that this business will double the amount of financial assistance acquired for patients in response to the perpetual shifting dynamics in healthcare expenditures. Among these influences are: revised drug tiers in insurances, higher prices for new pharmaceutical product lines, larger employee plan contributions (premiums and copays), and a slow recovering unemployment rate. Ultimately, all of these factors are out of the patients control and impact accessibility to therapy.

“Whether a patient is commercially insured, underinsured or indigent, essential treatments theoretically should never be denied due to expense concerns, “stated Kevin Beltzman, Pharmacy Advantage Financial Assistance Coordinator. “The Pharmacy Advantage team understands the intricacies of specialty medications and that they may be accompanied with a high cost. Therefore, it is vital for our patients to recognize that we are here to support them in their time of need and assure them that help truly does exist.”

Pharm, RPh., Vice President Pharmacy Advantage. “My vision for Pharmacy Advantage has always been to go above and beyond standard services being offered in the marketplace. In order to fully achieve this concept, we established a business platform with a patient centric focus. Overall, the objective is to enhance the patient experience for pharmaceutical treatment.” Kus further expressed, “Our professional staff possesses the expertise, dedication, and a genuine concern for our customers to guide them through challenging diagnoses.”
