Meeting the Challenges of Effective Rate Contracts

Better visibility to the mechanics of effective rates help

Pharmacies can track adherence rates, but they need more: the right tools to keep patients engaged and help them maintain adherence. Pharmacy First is taking steps toward solutions.

How DIR Fees Impact the Independent Pharmacy Industry

DIR fees were intended to provide transparency and lower patient costs, but they have become a serious financial burden for pharmacy owners. What’s next, and how can a PSAO help?

The Value of Comprehensive Claims Reconciliation
