Improving Medication Access to Help Impact More Patients

Barriers to Medication Access

More than 320 million prescriptions are rejected each year due to medication access challenges like prior authorization (PA). Of those, more than 40% or 128 million prescriptions are abandoned. 1 Such access challenges also delay time to therapy, with some patients waiting 3 – 6 weeks for specialty therapies in some cases. 1

Rejected claims result in lost scripts

When patients cannot access the medication they were prescribed, providers must decide between spending precious time on paperwork or switching therapy.

Rejected claims result in lost scripts and your brand being perceived as difficult to prescribe.

The difficulty of the medication access process can vary based on the complexity and expense of prescribed medications. Together, CoverMyMeds’ solutions can address unique access challenges for any medication, and we work with life science manufacturers to further our objective of helping patients get the medication they need to live healthy lives.

We do that by guiding patients and providers through healthcare challenges – using technologies like electronic prior authorization (ePA), prescription decision support (PDS) and end-to-end support for specialty medications to help patients get the medications their providers have prescribed to them.
