Online Forum: Navigating Prescription Medication Access & Patient Support Programs
3:00 pm - 4:00 pm CST
Navigating access to prescription medications and overcoming the financial barriers can be incredibly complex and frustrating. Join us for an informative virtual forum about the challenges to accessing prescription medications and cost-saving strategies. Phyllis Kidder, PharmD from Blue Fin Group will discuss the key players in the prescription drug supply chain (e.g. manufacturers, pharmacy benefit managers, insurers, etc.), common barriers like prior authorizations and step edits, and different ways patients can access cost savings. Representatives from SK Life Sciences and Jazz Pharmaceuticals will give brief overviews of the programs they offer to support patients accessing their antiseizure medications, and then we will have plenty of time for Q&A. Come learn from experts and get some of your questions answered!
It can be difficult to understand and navigate how prescription drugs get from the manufacturer to the pharmacy and what determines whether or not your insurance will cover the cost. Click here to visit our Medication Access page for resources to help you.
