A Patient's Experience with Ascension Michigan Specialty Pharmacy
Ascension Michigan Specialty Pharmacy:
The Ascension Michigan Specialty Pharmacy services patients with complex chronic diseases who need specialty medication.
We keep the prescriber informed of the status of the prescription throughout the process. We assist with prior authorizations and documentation. E-prescribing is welcome. Our pharmacy professionals coordinate with your prescriber’s office to ensure the right therapy, report adverse effects or other issues, and let them know when medication is delivered.
Each patient and/or caregiver receives a live telephone call from one of our pharmacy professionals. Our goal is to assure understanding of therapy and support the patient in managing issues related to their medication such as side effects, dosing schedules, and logistics. We help patients live with their conditions.
Specialty medications are usually quite expensive. With the growing complexities of third-party billing and coding, our experts help patients and prescribers navigate the health care maze to obtain reimbursement for specialty medications.
