CFO’s and HR Executives Must Start Managing Health Plans the Way They Manage Retirement Plans

CFO’s and HR Executives Must Start Managing Health Plans the Way They Manage Retirement Plans

CFO’s and HR Executives Must Start Managing Health Plans the Way They Manage Retirement Plans:

In this article you see the rising tide of employees demanding better oversight and management of their health plans in accordance with ERISA legislation. Traditionally, the focus was exclusively on retirement plans only. With the ever rising costs of healthcare and diminished quality and service, employees are fed up. The dispiriting part is that a self-insured employer need only create a wrap-around policy coupled with a Direct Primary Care practice and realize incredible cost savings and better health care.

Why Are Your Prescription Medications So Expensive?

Why Are Your Prescription Medications So Expensive?

Hey Tucson,

Has a doctor ever prescribed you a medication and told you how much it would cost? Did they tell you if there were lower priced alternatives that work just as well?

It doesn’t happen very often. Most physicians have no idea how much their patients have to pay for the drugs they prescribe. They just write the script.

In my practice, I know how much my patients pay for the meds I prescribe because I built an in-house pharmacy right in the clinic. We buy medications wholesale and sell them at cost to our patients.
Some patients pay less than a dollar a month for prescription medications. Take Lipitor, our patients pay $0.11 per pill. That’s just $3.30 per month.

Check out some of our medication prices.

One of my patients asked me for help recently. A specialist had prescribed her a long-acting form of a medication that only had to be taken once daily instead of twice. It cost $400 a month. The short acting form cost about $4 a month from our pharmacy- works just as well.
It seems like the luxury of taking a medication once a day instead of twice isn’t worth the 10,000% price increase.

Why do doctors prescribe stuff like that? A big reason is that representatives from the pharmaceutical companies buy them lunches and give them really nice pens. I would rather save my patients money and pack my own lunch.

Do me a favor. Add up how much you and your family spend on medications a month. If it is $50 or more shoot me an email and see if we can save you some money. Or hit up our website to learn more.
Regards,

Doctor Dave
