In a world where PBMs also operate their own in-house specialty pharmacies, the incentive to reduce competition through network termination of independent pharmacies has never been stronger. PBMs have used a variety of reasons to justify network termination, many of which are easily avoidable. But to do so requires knowledge by pharmacies, as well as swift and careful action when addressing audits, investigations and credentialing applications.

Join Jesse C. Dresser, Esq., and Alexandra M. Pearsall, Esq., attorneys at Frier Levitt, as they demonstrate how your pharmacy can avoid common pitfalls that can end up terminating a PBM contract.

This presentation will discuss:

  • PBM scrutiny on pharmacy relationships with pharmaceutical manufacturers
  • Staying compliant with copayment collection requirements
  • Proper inventory and drug sourcing practices, including focus on “Authorized Distributors” and “VAWD-Accredited” suppliers
  • Proper record keeping, documentation, and billing practices
  • Avoiding prescriber and patient denial discrepancies
  • Navigating PBM credentialing processes
  • Understanding retail, mail and specialty designations
