HDMA survey of specialty distribution: Sales to physicians' offices have dropped by 66% - Pharmaceutical Commerce

HDMA survey of specialty distribution: sales to physicians' offices have dropped by 66% - Pharmaceutical Commerce:

"A recap helps explain: Specialty pharmaceuticals differ from traditional pharma products in that they tend to be “high touch”—needing numerous ancillary services such as infusion, monitored dispensing, REMS, or followup care. As they tend to be expensive, the reimbursement / prior authorization / patient-support questions are also complex. Oncology products, in particular, have traditionally been purchased under a “buy and bill” model by physicians’ practices, but this is fading (as the HDMA date show) in place of sales to specialty pharmacies and health systems."

Contractors warn docs of DME scams | HME News

Contractors warn docs of DME scams | HME News:

"Common scams, according to the letter: unsolicited orders for medical equipment or supplies, often claiming a patient asked the supplier to contact the doctor; advertisements saying Medicare will pay physicians for patient referrals; and pre-completed medical necessity forms with instructions to sign and date.

The medical directors have asked doctors to pay careful attention to orders asking for their signatures. They recommend that doctors be skeptical of unsolicited orders for patients no longer in their practices and document medical justification for any DME item ordered for a patient."
