PharmaCare COVID-19 Newsletter – Early Fills and Emergency Supply

I realize some of you may already subscribe to PharmaCare’s newsletters but, in case you do not, I wanted to send out their most current statement. PharmaCare has issued a special newsletter regarding COVID-19, which I have attached to this email. This will apply for all PharmaCare Plans not only Plan W.

 

The letter explains how pharmacists can now use an intervention code for early fills and how they should also not hesitate to provide emergency fills under the Professional Practice Policy 31 (Emergency Supply for Continuity of Care) for prescriptions that would otherwise require a prescriber (GP/NP) visit.

 

If you have any questions, you’re welcome to send me an email or call. You can also call 1-855-550-5454 and speak to a health benefits assessor. This said, as our operations team is currently working at low staff capacity, you may experience a longer than usual wait time.

 

In Wellness,
