Specialty pharmaceuticals that treat chronic or serious medical conditions are one of the fastest growing – and most costly – segments in today’s prescription medications market. It’s no surprise, then, that the US Government is implementing many regulations and programs around the development and approval of specialty drugs.
A Voice for Patients
Since our inception, the HPC actively has developed solid working relationships with governmental officials at both the state and federal levels. These relationships are maintained today by our External Affairs Department and focus on two main areas:
Our full-time compliance officer ensures that HPC complies with strict government regulations and other contracts across our system of care. This compliance includes a thorough assessment for any kind of waste, fraud, or abuse. HPC’s internal quality improvement program and various accreditation demonstrate that we are working continuously to meet – and often exceed – expectations for compliance.
HPC regularly advocates for patients with chronic and debilitating diseases, and points them to government-assisted healthcare programs when appropriate. Often unable to speak for themselves, these patients often can achieve better outcomes using specialty medications, but may not have the means to do so. Their participation in available government programs often enables them to access the needed specialty drugs as well as vital services from a high-touch pharmacy such as HPC. Assistance programs include:
- Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program
- Other Government Assistance Programs, including:
- Single mothers and their children
- Disabled populations
Partnering for Better Outcomes
From our leading pharmacy services to our clinical nursing staff to our reimbursement and community specialists, HPC carefully manages the delivery and clinical management of the specialty medications that we dispense within the parameters of government regulations.
HPC views the government agencies that oversee Medicare, Medicaid, and other assistance programs as our partners in ensuring quality treatment that can improve the health status of our patients, as well as their overall quality of life.
