Manufacturing FDA ticks off list of grievances over California drug repackager's quality issues in warning letter - FiercePharma

This should interest wholesalers specializing or involved in drug repackaging.

According to the article:

"Unlike drugmakers that make their meds in-house, a cottage industry of repackagers exists to resell premade drugs with shiny new labels. But what happens when one of those companies fails at its primary job: safely repackaging drugs? A California firm has just found out, courtesy of the FDA. 

Newport Beach, California-based Calvin Scott & Co., a wholesaler specializing in drug repackaging, failed to adequately address quality issues at its New Mexico plant that may have compromised the listed expiration date on one of its drugs, according to a warning letter posted online this week."

Using Medicare Accreditation To Make A Difference With Private Pay Insurance: HME-Business

In a nutshell:

Providers need accreditation to bill Medicare, but it's critical in HME businesses' overall market strategy for working with private payers, as well. What do providers need to keep in mind?

According to the article:

  • "After years of largely accepting the accreditation requirement, private payers have begun to scrutinize what product categories providers are accredited for when making decisions about valuable contracts.
  • As the HME industry weathers the storm of the COVID-19 pandemic, demonstrating compliance and emergency preparedness policies to private payers will become more crucial in standing out in the marketplace.
  • Accrediting organizations have created programs specifically targeted at proving expertise in product categories such as oxygen, home infusion, pharmacy and more."
