Taking the High Cost Out of Specialty Drugs
Reducing the Rising Costs of Specialty Medications
Innovations in pharmaceuticals have opened new worlds of drug therapies that can dramatically improve a patient’s quality of life. Unfortunately, these therapies, also known as specialty drugs, often come with price tags that make some drugs unaffordable for many patients, even if they have health insurance. Some of these expensive specialty drugs can offer life-changing treatment for serious conditions, such as autoimmune diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer and multiple sclerosis.
Even when a health plan offers some coverage for specialty drugs, many patients don’t comply with prescription treatment recommendations because of high copayments. This can result in a reduced patient quality of life and poor clinical outcomes, which can lead to significantly higher overall healthcare costs in the long run.
Smart RxAssist has an answer! By helping patients capture the maximum benefit of manufacturer copay cards, Smart RxAssist can reduce or even eliminate patient copays!
