Specialty medications provide life-changing treatments for members with complex, chronic, and rare diseases – but the cost of these drugs can be hard for self-funded plans to bear.
RxBenefits’ Preferred Patient Assistance solutions help connect members with the drugs they need while reducing risk and controlling costs.
Manufacturer Assistance Solutions
Mitigating the cost of pricey specialty drugs to help patients get the medication they need
Through manufacturer assistance solutions, drug manufacturers connect qualifying patients with the drugs they need at more affordable prices. This comes in the form of copay assistance – the manufacturer covers the patient’s copay, leaving the patient with no cost to them at the pharmacy counter.
Manufacturer assistance solutions are available through all three of the leading PBMs. RxBenefits helps benefit consultants and their clients get the most of out these programs, minimizing out-of-pocket costs for the member as they purchase their crucial, expensive drugs.
