On a less exciting note, January brought some unexpected
surprises in a bad way. Practices nationwide are suffering
with increased paperwork. This comes from government and
private insurance, so we can't blame one or the other.
One or two medicines for thousands of patients adds up to
hours and hours of extra work. We have done our best to
keep up through high levels of efficiency and technology,
but it is now overwhelming.
In order to keep up with the paperwork alone, we are
having to pay overtime and hire more employees.
We appreciate your understanding.
We did much research into the most fair
and reasonable way to address this issue that none of us enjoys.
For all prior authorization from insurance,
(1) Patient must contact insurance to obtain preferred formulary.
If the patient is willing/able to take the preferred brand,
then the patient is to call the Doctors office so that a new
prescription is sent to their pharmacy.
(2) If the patient prefers to proceed with a prior authorization,
there is a $20 processing fee to be paid in advance.
This does NOT guarantee the prior authorization will be approved.
The prior authorization is processed and may take up to 72 hrs,
depending on their insurance. Once approval or denial is received,
will be forwarded to pharmacy.
IF THE AUTHORIZATION IS DENIED NO REFUND WILL BE GIVEN.
