BioPlus Now Part of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina Specialty Pharmacy Network
(August 05, 2011)

Altamonte Springs, FL (PRWEB) August 05, 2011

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina has made BioPlus Specialty Pharmacy part of their specialty pharmacy network. Specialty pharmacies provide access to high cost medications needed for conditions such as arthritis, hepatitis C, cancer, hemophilia, and other chronic diseases. Typically, access to these types of medications is limited and not usually available at local drug stores.

Our mission of measurably improving outcomes gives us a guideline to provide cost effective management solutions for patients, payers, and physicians, states Dr. Stephen Vogt, president and CEO of BioPlus.

BioPlus not only provides access to these drugs, but also works on educating the patients, which has led to improved drug adherence and a better quality of life for patients. Our partnership with the physician touches the life of a patient in ways that mail-order simply cannot, notes Dr. Vogt. The latest compliance statistics, based on more than 19,700 BioPlus patients being treated for hepatitis C, oncology, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, Crohns disease, and other conditions, show that BioPlus achieves a 91 percent compliance rate at discharge. The compliance rate for retail and mail-order pharmacies is only 50 percent.

BioPlus provides comprehensive training by a registered pharmacist and provides 24/7 phone access to pharmacists including nights, weekends, and holidays. As families are faced with confusing choices of their benefits and increases in their premiums and co-pays, it is a win for beneficiaries to get our value added services, states Dr. Vogt. We dont use phone-trees, we coordinate care with the physician and insurance plan as we have for over 20 years.
