Consumer cost-sharing for prescription drugs is high and getting higher.  To address the high out-of-pocket medication costs, patient assistance programs — such as co-pay cards — have become available to reduce consumers’ financial liability.  However, the use of co-pay assistance for medications for which there is an effective, lower-cost alternative is deemed as financially burdensome to the healthcare system.

To counteract this inefficiency, Accumulator Adjuster Programs – which prevent co-pay assistance funds from being applied to patients’ deductibles – are increasingly being implemented, resulting in greater patient financial responsibility and potential disruption of recommended treatments.  

Our “Precision Co-Pay Assistance Programs” whiteboard video introduces a clinically nuanced solution designed to ensure access to clinically indicated therapies.
