This recently published paper discusses the future role of FQHCS as prescription safety-net providers. The study highlights that despite changes implemented as part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), underinsured populations are still prevalent and still need financial assistance with medications. The writers point out that FQHCs are best situated to provide this assistance, and emphasize the need for additional policy and funding (like expanding 340B programs) to support FQHCs in fulfilling this role.
Do you have a 340B pharmacy solution in place, and is it generating positive return? Is your in-house capture rate > 50%, or with contracted pharmacy are you capturing ~70%? If not, contact us – we can help!
