Price Chopper launches new specialty pharmacy program
SCHENECTADY, N.Y. — Price Chopper Supermarkets has launched a new specialty pharmacy program, which expands pharmacy services in an effort to provide more convenient and personalized solutions for patients living with chronic and complex health conditions.
The program is part of a partnership with Aureus Health Services, a specialty pharmacy and health management company.
“This partnership between Price Chopper Supermarkets and Aureus Health Services is certain to be a success, given our combined commitment to providing patients with a more convenient and personalized option to treat their chronic and complex health conditions,” stated Kathy Bryant, Price Chopper’s VP of pharmacy. “Our patients will reap the benefits of having all of their medication needs managed locally by their neighborhood pharmacist, with whom they have a strong and trusting relationship.”
Price Chopper’s new program will provide patients with access to specialty medications, which can be complex to administer, have a high cost and/or require special storage or handling, at their local community pharmacy.
“Aureus is excited to work with such a dedicated partner as Price Chopper, who shares our focus on patient outcomes,” added Michael Nameth, CEO Aureus Health Services. “Price Chopper’s position in the market and local access is perfectly suited for a hands-on approach to specialty pharmacy, and we are thrilled to support them with this mission.”
Specialty medications require strict adherence to a treatment plan aimed at successful outcomes, making Price Chopper’s specialty pharmacy services an integral component of a patient’s holistic healthcare plan. Additional services include providing educational resources, developing an individualized clinical care plan, coordinating insurance benefits, finding financial assistance to help patients afford their medications, and ensuring continuous patient care throughout the course of treatment.
In addition to the new specialty pharmacy program, Price Chopper pharmacies offer Diabetes AdvantEdge, immunizations, MTM and medication discounts through the RxAdvantEdge Plan.
