Drug Utilization Reviews

We conduct drug utilization reviews for Members to help make sure that they are getting safe and appropriate care. These reviews are especially important for Members who have more than one provider who prescribes their drugs. We review prescription records on a regular basis to check for potential medication therapy problems, such as duplicate therapy, drug interactions, and safety concerns. If we identify a possible problem, we will work with providers to correct the problem.

 

Opioid Safety Alerts

In accordance with CMS policy, Alignment implements opioid safety alerts (pharmacy claim edits) for pharmacists to review at the time of dispensing a medication to prevent the unsafe utilization of drugs. Prescribers are expected to respond to pharmacists’ outreach in a timely manner and give the appropriate training to on-call prescribers when necessary to resolve opioid safety edits expeditiously and avoid disruption of therapy. To avoid a prescription from being rejected at the pharmacy, prescribers may also proactively request a coverage determination in advance of prescribing an opioid prescription.

 

Patient Member Discount

Novus Cannabis MedPlan was founded and similar to 340B Drug Discount Program which is a US federal government program  to provide outpatient meds to eligible Novus covered patient/members at reduced prices. Though cannabis is not legal federal. The minimum discount that a provider is 25% discount on the retail gross.
