The Centers For Medicare and Medicaid Services Issues Advance Guidance to Part D Plan Sponsors Allowing the Use of Generic Sampling as Medicare Part D Drug Utilization Management Tool.
Date:3/10/2011

SAN DIEGO, March 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MedVantx, Inc., the company that created first ever controlled access to generic samples in US physician offices, today announced that the Centers For Medicare and Medicaid Services ("CMS") has issued preliminary guidance to Medicare Part D Plan Sponsors on generic sampling programs. In a February 11, 2011 advanced notice for public comment, CMS indicated that a Part D sponsor may incur expenses related to distribution of and reporting on generic drug samples, provided to members within a physician's office setting, under the plan's administrative cost structure.  Once this proposal is finalized, Part D plan sponsors may account for MedVantx's generic sampling program both in their 2012 Medicare offering and in the current year.

MedVantx provides free generic medications in US physician offices for consumers through its proprietary automated ATM-like prescription management system (MedStart™). The MedStart™ system automates the traditional pharmaceutical sampling process for the physician and the MedVantx Patient ProfileLink™ interface captures physician sampling data in the patient's health plan electronic medical record claims history. Through the MedVantx program, patients managing complex and chronic conditions can receive generic samples covering the majority of acute and chronic conditions as part of their physician office visit. MedVantx collaborates with physicians and health plans to provide consumers access to integrated care coordination management and reimbursement counseling services and the convenience of home delivery of low cost prescriptions.  The program has proven effective in reducing costs and critical gaps in care for patients with chronic and complex diseases.

"We are excited about the use of the MedVantx ProfileLink™ claims data in the Medicare Part D marketplace," said Susan Hogue, RPh, and MedVantx Director of Managed Networks & Clinical Servic
