Product price is not filled in. This product cannot be purchased.
John E. Dicken (au)
Independent pharmacies dispensed about 17% of all prescription drugs in the U.S. in 2010. To obtain, distribute, and collect payment for drugs dispensed, pharmacies interact with a network of entities, including drug wholesalers and third-party payers. With limited time and resources, independent pharmacies may need assistance in interacting with these entities, particularly with third-party payers that include large private and public health plans. Most use a pharmacy services administrative organization (PSAO) to interact on their behalf. PSAOs develop networks of pharmacies by signing contractual agreements with each pharmacy that authorizes them to interact with third-party payers on the pharmacyńˇ╗s behalf by, for example, negotiating contracts. PSAOs provide intermediary or other services to assist pharmacies with third-party payers. This report describes: (1) how many PSAOs are in operation and how many pharmacies contract with PSAOs for services; (2) the services PSAOs offer and how they are paid for these services; and (3) entities that own PSAOs and the types of relationships that exists between owners and the pharmacies they represent. Tables and figure. This is a print on demand report.
