New Physicians Survey: Most Drugstores Lack the 'Expertise and Capability' to Provide Specialty Medications
Date:12/12/2013

at all drugstores "have the expertise and capability to provide the different types of specialty medications to patients."  Five percent of these physicians say all traditional drugstores have the expertise and capability to provide these specialty drugs and 25 percent say most do, while 66 percent say some do and 2 percent say none.
  • Specialists are overwhelmingly satisfied with the specialty pharmacies they work with. These specialists are satisfied with the services provided by specialty pharmacies by an 89 to 7 margin.
  • Specialists think drug companies should offer discounts to individuals who can't afford expensive specialty drugs, instead of making small businesses offer low copays to everyone.  Only 35 percent of the specialists in these fields believe that small businesses should be required to have lower copays for expensive specialty medications, while 45 percent believe drug companies should be required to offer discounts to individuals who cannot afford the drugs.
  • PCMA represents the nation's pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), which improve affordability and quality of care through the use of electronic prescribing (e-prescribing), generic alternatives, mail-service pharmacies, and other innovative tools for 216 million Americans.
