When prescribers don’t have insight into accurate, patient-specific cost and coverage information, patients are often hit with unexpected costs at the pharmacy counter. Even a small difference in price can cause them to skip doses, avoid refills, or simply abandon their prescription. For instance, we know that a copay increase of as little as $10 can determine whether a patient adheres to treatment or not. At best, they’re frustrated at the process. At worst, their treatment may be delayed or they may skip it altogether, leading to costly readmissions.
New data shows Real-Time Prescription Benefit is making a difference and prescribers are embracing this highly desired technology at an incredible rate. In one instance, one prescriber saved their patient $8,032 out of pocket on a single prescription. In addition to these impressive out-of-pocket costs, prescribers are also saving massive amounts of time because they are able to choose a drug that doesn’t require a prior authorization.
Prescription price transparency is here and made an impact on the lives of clinicians and their patients in 2018.
