Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features a guest post from Coventry’s Brian Carpenter, R. Ph. in response to the recent report from CompPharma on its research on compounded medications. Carpenter agrees with the consortium’s recommendations, and also outlines some practical steps to help make progress given the current environment.
The post also includes some interesting notes from Coventry’s data, including that about 80% of compound prescriptions are billed ‘out of network’ and are ‘paper billed’, which means that they are not required to follow the strict formats used by network pharmacies, thus making them difficult to identify and manage.
