Dialysis Patients Need Bone & Mineral Metric
Date:8/30/2013

at are currently in place in the Medicare Part D prescription drug program.  Such protections should include:

  • requiring that more than one drug is available within a therapeutic class, to help ensure that patients are not pushed to the least expensive medication without an alternative;
  • ensuring accessibility to an appeals process for patients needing other pharmaceutical options, in case patients are denied access to the treatment that is best for them;
  • preserving the annual drug utilization review, so that if medications are changed pharmacists first look at any potential drug interactions; and
  • adding geographic access standards to make sure patients don't have to travel far if a dialysis facility contracts with a brick and mortar pharmacy.

"Dialysis patients need protections in place for good patient care, which includes safe BMM levels as well as Part D consumer protections," added Jamgochian.
